OECD Factbook 2008 – now “alive” and focus on productivity

The free online economic statistics in the 2008 OECD Factbook (www.sourceoecd.org/factbook) have been transformed to include animated diagrams of the key indicators which bring the data alive visually. The interactive graphs enable users to clearly observe trends in the statistics and interact with the data to perform their chosen comparisons between countries. The Factbook also includes increased data for key non-OECD Member Countries, Brazil, Chile, China, Estonia, India, Israel, Russia, Slovenia and South Africa.

See for example Real GDP growth and Labour productivity.

  1. Hello there. I was sent a link to your blog by a friend a while ago. I have been reading a long for a while now. Just wanted to say HI. Thanks for putting in all the hard work.

  2. The Factbook is now also available in Gapminder Trendalyzer-format. They are the first member in the Gapminder Graphs Community you wrote about in May.


    They became a member and added their indicators into a Gapminder Graph, and are the first to publish a graph on their web-page.
