PC-Axis and PX-Web are software used in several countries for dissemination of official statistics. PC-Axis is a windows browser and PX-Web is for the Web and both are based on the PC-Axis file format. The PC-Axis file format is very meta data rich and should be a nice way to forward statistics into the Gapminder/Google/Trendalyzer. Most of the data are in time series. A lot of data is available in this format from many National Statistical Offices over the world. Some countries in Europe: Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Nations Economic Commission for Europe etc. Links to these websites are available in the link above.
The PC-Axis file format is an open format in plain ascii and should be very easy to utilize as input for Trendalyzer. Perhaps this is something for Google to check.
