I have just updated my Internet MiniGuide Annotated Link Compilation white paper titled “Online Research Browsers” a 17 page research paper listing many resources both new and existing that will help anyone who is attempting to find information and knowledge research about online research browsers available on the Internet. These research browsers allow you to visualize information to find new relationships and associations to create knowledge discovery and obtain new and highly relevant research data. It is freely available as a .pdf file (149KB) at the above link from the Virtual Private Library™ and authored by Marcus P. Zillman, M.S., A.M.H.A. It was updated August 29, 2012.

The World Bank – Data

August 29, 2012

The World Bank – Data
http://data.worldbank.org/

This site is meant to provide all users with improved access to World Bank data and to make that data easy to find and use. The World Bank recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to the development process and central to achieving the Bank’s mission to alleviate poverty. The Bank’s commitment to openness is also driven by a desire to foster public ownership, partnership and participation in development from a wide range of stakeholders. As a knowledge institution, the World Bank’s first step is to share its knowledge freely and openly. Statistics and data are a key part of that knowledge and are easily accessible on the web for all users. The World Bank provides free and open access to a comprehensive set of data about development in countries around the globe, together with other datasets cited in the data catalog. Broader access to these data allow policymakers and advocacy groups to make better-informed decisions and measure improvements more accurately. They are also valuable tools to support research by journalists, academia and others, broadening understanding of global issues. Open Data Services of The World Bank include: a) 8000+ Times Series Indicators in dataBank; b) 850+ Datasets in Finances; c) 11,000+ Activities in Projects & Operations; and d) 700+ Surveys in Microdata. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to International Trade Resources Subject Tracer™. This has been added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Statistics Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Deep Web Research Subject Tracer™.

Eurostat – Your Key To European Statistics

Eurostat – Your Key To European Statistics
http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/

Eurostat’s mission: to be the leading provider of high quality statistics on Europe.
Eurostat is the statistical office of the European Union situated in Luxembourg. Its task is to provide the European Union with statistics at European level that enable comparisons between countries and regions. This is a key task. Democratic societies do not function properly without a solid basis of reliable and objective statistics. On one hand, decision-makers at EU level, in Member States, in local government and in business need statistics to make those decisions. On the other hand, the public and media need statistics for an accurate picture of contemporary society and to evaluate the performance of politicians and others. Of course, national statistics are still important for national purposes in Member States whereas EU statistics are essential for decisions and evaluation at European level. Statistics can answer many questions. Is society heading in the direction promised by politicians? Is unemployment up or down? Are there more CO2 emissions compared to ten years ago? How many women go to work? How is your country’s economy performing compared to other EU Member States? International statistics are a way of getting to know your neighbours in Member States and countries outside the EU. They are an important, objective and down-to-earth way of measuring how we all live. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to International Trade Resources Subject Tracer™. This has been added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Statistics Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Deep Web Research Subject Tracer™.

UNdata – Data Access System To UN Databases
http://data.un.org/

The United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) launched a new internet based data service for the global user community. It brings UN statistical databases within easy reach of users through a single entry point. Users can now search and download a variety of statistical resources of the UN system. Useful features like Country Profiles, Advanced Search and Glossaries are also provided to aid research. The numerous databases, tables and glossaries containing over 60 million data points cover a wide range of themes including Agriculture, Crime, Education, Employment, Energy, Environment, Health, HIV/AIDS, Human Development, Industry, Information and Communication Technology, National Accounts, Population, Refugees, Tourism, Trade, as well as the Millennium Development Goals indicators. Whilst this initial version of UNdata is fully equipped with all the functionalities for data access, the development team is continuously adding new databases and features to further enhance the usefulness to users. When fully developed, UNdata will have a comprehensive array of international and national databases providing the world instant access to a wealth of statistical information. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to International Trade Resources Subject Tracer™.
