EUI members have access from 1 January 2018. Quantitative data from 425 sectors in 50 countries are provided with a range of infographic tools for analysis and visualisation.

Result sets can also be sorted by category: statistics, forecasts, studies, industry reports or infographics. Statista also produces industry reports, market forecasts and ‘toplists’ of sectoral statistics.

The new EUI ResData repository for sharing and archiving EUI research data outputs

EUI members can now submit their research datasets for inclusion in the EUI ResData repository – a solution for sharing and archiving EUI research data outputs. Library staff provide advice on dataset tagging (metadata), formats, structure and whether data should be archived under embargo, or made available as open data. The first step is to complete the online form – providing details about the dataset for reposit. The Library will then make an appointment for data transfer. Full details.
