International Historical Statistics (IHS)
|Name:||International Historical Statistics (IHS)|
The International Historical Statistics (IHS) series is a unique collection of statistics covering a wide range of socioeconomic topics. It is a collection of data sets taken from hundreds of disparate primary sources, including both official national and international abstracts – dating back to 1750. The new online edition provides updated statistics to 2010 – covering 260 years. The collection is a truly interdisciplinary resource; it will be of interest to academics, researchers and students in sociology, politics, history, economics, business, environment, international relations, geography and statistical studies and related professional services alike.
Three separate geographical regions are covered, each in a separate volume: Europe, the Americas and Africa, Asia and Oceania. Each volume follows the same easy-to-use format to facilitate comparative analysis, with statistics grouped according to ten standard headings: Population and Vital Statistics - Labour Force - Agriculture - Industry - External Trade - Transport and Communications - Finance - Prices - Education - National Accounts
