A key objective of EMEDRs is to help individuals and organisations navigate and make sense of the wealth of economic data that is now openly available for study. Key to this is keeping track of what data exists, how it can be accessed, and how we can coordinate activities to avoid repetition. Here is a list of data sets we know of and sites that allow understanding and/or visualisation of that data. We also provide some examples of the resources available on each site. We are updating this list and so keen to know of any data sources we are missing.
