  • UNdata
    This site gathers statistics from 24 separate databases from the United Nations and makes them all accessible through one search interface. When a data set is located, the user is presented with an option to preview the data. The data can then be customized using country or area and time period filters. Researchers can select which columns they would like to be displayed and decide how they would like the elements to be sorted. There is also an option to “link to this page,” so that a permanent URL will be created for the data.

  • UNICEF Statistics
    Select a country or region to retrieve information on population, mortality rate, immunization, water and sanitation, education, reproductive health, etc.

In addition to statistics, this site outlines some of the main gender issues relevant to the region, and provides examples of policies and other initiatives.
