Trade organisations

Trade organisations will often collect their data in an easy, usable format, for example, the British Bankers’ Association.

Non-Official Data Sources

The main non-official data sources are those collected by university researchers. Some of these sites are huge. The most famous is perhaps the Penn World Tables, which provides data designed for cross-country comparisons of GDP and growth.

The ESRC, which funds research in the social sciences, has a data archive (at the University of Essex).
