FAOSTAT: FAO Statistical Databases

In 1997 the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations made available several searchable databases containing extensive agricultural data from many countries. Data is provided for production, trade, commodity supply and demand balances, population, land use, and fisheries. Users can select geographical areas, commodities or products, variables relating to those commodities or products, and an annual time series ranging from as early as 1961, depending on the series. Results can be downloaded as text tables, bar or line graphs with user definable axes, or CSV file format -- text with comma separated values for easy import into spreadsheet or other statistical applications. It is important to carefully read the help files that accompany each database in order to fully exploit the searching system. The FAOSTAT Databases give the user access to an amazing amount of country data.
