GFD provides over 40,000 economic data files
Beginning with archives taken from monasteries chronicling centuries of economic information, GFD has compiled an impressive collection of data on over 200 countries.
We have researched millions of data series from the World Bank, United Nations, OECD, International Monetary Fund, Eurostat, the Federal Reserve and dozens of other government agencies to provide subscribers with a thorough picture of the world’s economic variables. These core series are a perfect complement to the alternative historical data that we offer our users.
Development data covers Agriculture, Energy, Health, Population, Technology and the Environment. An insight into the depth of our economic indicators, our Agricultural data begins with hand records by monks in the 1000s and our Population data begin in the Middle Ages.
GFD provides complete information on Consumer Prices, Wholesale Prices, Monetary Aggregates, Production and other measures of the economy.
Government and Debt measure the size of the government budget, revenues, expenditures and debt so analysts can relate changes in these variables to changes in financial markets. Data on England begins in 1168, on France in the 1400s and on the United States in the 1790s.
International Trade provides data on the Balance of Payments, Imports and Exports, and Trade Barriers to see how these variables affect stocks and bonds. We have documented data on imports and exports beginning in the 1790s.
National Accounts include thousands of data series on GDP and series relating to GDP. Estimates of GDP begin in 1270 for the United Kingdom and the 1790s for the United States.
