Data Service & Information

DSI Data Service & Information aggregates the world's most important socio-economic statistical time series databases published by national and international official and semi-official institutions, and makes the content available through its unique platform AllThatStats.com.


provides optimised access to the latest statistical information:

  • "Big Sources": e.g. World Bank, IMF, UNIDO, OECD, EU Commission, Eurostat - Statistical Office of the EU, ECB
  • "Big Data": approx. 65.000 databases including 1+ billion time series and country tables
  • Direct access to the latest data figures ready for implementation into economic models, scientific reports and presentations
  • Web content from international organisations and research institutions, national statistical offices and central banks
  • Search interfaces make the content available for all internal and external sources
  • Tools for statistical ad-hoc analyses and presentations in graphics and tables
  • Indispensable for market and country analyses in economics, politics and administration
  • Optimised for the special demand in the field of research and teaching

The statistical retrieval platform AllThatStats is based on DSI's 30 years of experience in statistical databases and the close co-operation with statistical offices and central banks.

Why AllthatStats

Instead of decrypting "bulk downloads" and ensuring current data figures only by investing in expensive regular coding works, AllThatStats guarantees not only the complex "extract, transform, load" in due time, but also updates the underlying thesauri and classification plans on the fly.

AllThatStats aggregates the world's most important statistical sources on a common platform equipped with multiple and powerful services:

  • its navigation is "reduced to the max" to avoid time-consuming manoeuvres
  • its content is available through an extra fast interface with simultaneous keyword search operating across all databases, including all time series descriptions and classification plans
  • it provides a toolbox for ad-hoc statistical time series analysis
  • the time series can be exported into spreadsheets or transferred via e-mail or social networks
  • the time series can be edited and published in graphics in high print quality

In addition, also the classic tree structure - sources, themes and databases - is provided allowing organisation of statistical time series databases. Drill-down functionalities enable quick access to each database in question.

AllthatStats Databases

Direct access to leading national and international time series databases from the most important official and semi-official sources, e.g. World Bank, IMF, UNIDO, OECD, European Commission, Eurostat, FED, ECB:

Of cause you can find all the classic databases, such as OECD's "Main Economic Indicators" or World Bank's "World Development Indicators" on our platform, but also e.g. the complete external trade statistics from the OECD and the European Union (the latter supplemented by the carbon footprint figures induced by the corresponding import and export flows).

Last but not least, there are big datasets offering even sub-national data: the regional statistics of the OECD and the European Union aggregating detailed data figures on the level of provinces (NUTS 2), counties and cities (NUTS 3).

AllthatStats Data Services

Either standard access or custom-made:

  • 24/7: internet services around the clock every day of the year
  • up to date: automated data synchronisation with each data source
  • "customised": implementation of customer-specific databases into AllThatStats, incl. update and hosting services
  • controlled: IP-based, automatic login
  • variable: login by user ID and password on request
  • combined: supplementary archive services (CD-/DVD-ROM)

AllthatStats Retrieval

The enhancement of the AllThatStats search engine supports a fast and constructive retrieval, simultaneously searching across all “Big Sources” and beyond. The results are presented in up to three hit lists:

  • direct hits: list of single time series, extracted in milliseconds by keyword search (each data set completed by its unique micro-chart)
  • database hits: displays relevant databases - alternatively also accessible via the integrated central search tree (by sources, themes, databases)
  • external hits: each query also browses through thousands of web sites from central banks and national statistical authorities and provides the results

The AllThatStats search tree sorts all databases in a hierarchical order by sources and themes and guides you to a specific database (or database level).

At the database level, classification plans, methodological notes and powerful filter tools support the final selection work.

AllthatStats Toolbox

In regards to data processing, the tools aim at aligning the provided techniques to what is really required for a successful selection:

  • exporting: common formats (CSV, Excel, LaTeX) are ready to download the selection for immediate use e.g. in spreadsheets or models
  • visualising: direct display in graphs (lines, bars) or tables
  • sharing: pass the results on to colleagues or social networks and allow direct access to the respective tables or graphs
  • analysing: ad-hoc calculations, e.g. lags, moving averages, forecasts, differences or rates of change etc.
  • publishing: generate tables and graphs in high quality image formats for easy implementation into digital publishing (supported formats: PDF, PNG, SVG and as "R-Snippet" incl. data file)
