Economist Intelligence Unit Country Reports Archive provides detailed coverage of political, economic and commercial developments worldwide from the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU)’s historical Country Reports (previously Quarterly Economic Reviews), covering all countries from 1952 to 1995. Comprehensive quarterly overviews allow researchers to gain a thorough understanding of an event, policy or development from one or two reports.
The depth of the archive allows researchers access to a consistent, impartial voice back to 1952, and in addition to the highly regarded insight from EIU, each report contains tables with detailed country level statistics downloadable to Excel allowing users to see the numbers behind the text. Keyword searchable full text allows users to quickly find references to specific people, events or companies whichever report they occur in.
All EIU Country Reports (including previous incarnations as Quarterly Economic Reviews and Three-Monthly Economic Reviews) back to 1952 are included to provide the most comprehensive single source of global economic analysis available, giving users a huge archive of information all in a single voice.
Reports are quarterly allowing researchers to gain a thorough understanding of a historical event from one document, rather than piecing together from numerous sources that are often only providing daily updates. Each report contains tables with detailed country level statistics, many of which are difficult to find elsewhere, allowing users to see the numbers behind the text.
All figures & tables within a report are captured at object level and can be searched and downloaded separately. Users can download data tables into spreadsheets making it easier to use & combine statistics from different reports.
