Penn world tables version 5.6

Constructed by Robert Summers and Alan Heston of the University of Pennsylvania, together with the late Irving Kravis, the Penn World Tables are the definitive source for real national accounts data. The national accounts for each country, initially in their own currencies, are adjusted using detailed price data to obtain real national accounts in a common currency (U.S. dollars) across countries. These data are invaluable for making comparisons of Gross Domestic Product across countries, and for all manner of research on development and growth.

The publication began in 1977, under the title Geographic Distribution of Financial Flows to Developing Countries. The data contained in this publication provides a comprehensive illustration of the volume, origin and types of aid and other resource flows dating from 1960 to 1998. 

United Nations statistical yearbook, 1999

The Statistical Yearbook provides systematic information on a wide range of social and economic issues that are of concern in the United Nations system and among the governments and peoples of the world. A particular value of the Yearbook, but also its greatest challenge, is that these issues are extensively interrelated. Meaningful social and economic analysis of these issues requires systematization and coordination of the data across many fields.
