Need data for school? Decades of international trade data now available!

Writing an empirical paper? Or assigning papers to your class? Thanks to SAS and the United Nations Statistics Division, you can now analyze the world's largest bank of international trade data. In the UN Comtrade database, you'll find details on more than 200 countries' import/export habits since 1988 and much more. Who knows what stories are hidden in there? You use SAS, so you're uniquely equipped to discover them. Find out more in this blog post by SAS' I-Sah Hsieh and go exploring with SAS Visual Analytics.

Here, at a glance, are top importers and commodities (click to enlarge):
