Government-Based Information

Each country's government produces a variety of information, including statistical data and documents, much of it available on official government websites.

You can also find a variety of information on government websites through general WWW searching. Look for .gov.xx at the end of the main part of the URL (Internet address) for the website, e.g., would indicate an official Afghanistan website. See this list of country codes used in URLs. Note that the United States' websites usually end in .gov with no country designation.
