Worth Noting: United Nations Infonation For Country Data

The United Nations Infonation database on the
U.N. Cyberschoolbus web site allows researchers to view
and compare statistical data for countries that are a
part of the United Nations.

Infonation now offers basic and advanced versions.
In the basic version, you can choose up to six countries
from an alphabetical list of all countries. In the advanced
version you can choose up to six countries from 57 different
country groupings arranged by geographic region, membership
in intergovernmental organizations, or socio-economic status.
In both versions, data can be displayed as a bar graph that
can be printed.
