International Cities: Information & Statistics: Statistical

This guide focuses on resources that provide difficult-to-find data and other information about individual cities outside the United States, including some comparative sources. I have excluded country-level data and information resources.

Country-Level Sources with Data on Individual Cities


The National Statistical Agencies section in Sócrates Reyes' research guide, Statistics and Data for Latin America, lists links to online data that may include city-level data. Note that you can change the interface language to English on some sites if you don't read the default language.

See, for example,

Argentina: 2010 Census/Censo 2010. Begin by selecting Provincial under Alcance.

Brazil: Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística (IBGE): 2010 census. City-level data available here: Ciudades@.

Mexico: Instituto Nacional de Estadística, Geografía e Informática (INEGI). Choose the state from the dropdown menu by the map, México en cifras/Mexico in figures. Then choose the Municipo/Municipality on the underlying page.



The comprehensive Country Statistical Yearbooks research guide from the University of Wisconsin-Madison Library links to online national statistical agencies. Some of these sites include data for cities in that country; you will have to explore the site to uncover the city data when it is available.
