Social Science Data Resources: China, Japan, Korea

Statistics and data resources by subject.


The links below are a mix of official statistical agencies and social science data archives.  While most of these sources are available to all, a few are subscription databases whose use is limited to current Northwestern University faculty, staff, and students. Data from the World Bank, the United Nations, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is available openly to all, but typically provides data aggregated at the national level.  Data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is also available at the national level for these, and other, nations.  Some OECD data are available to all, others is by subscription.
