Statistical Data

United Nations Development Programme: Open Data

In an effort to expand access to large data sets and information about their work, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has created this website to provide access to such materials. Visitors can dive right in with the "Exploring the Data" section, and they have the option to look over information organized by country or project. The helpful diagram on the homepage provides a basic visual representation of where the UNDP directs its various resources. Recent data indicates that the top three recipients of UNDP funds are Afghanistan, the Republic of the Sudan, and Zimbabwe. On the right-hand side of the homepage, visitors can use the "Our Stories" section to learn about how the UNDP deploys its resources in Somalia to support local governance and their work supporting fishermen in Panama. When looking through the countries or projects for data sets, visitors will note that they can look over the data in a visual format, export it for other uses, and also filter through the dataset. >From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2011.
