Energy Statistics

The Energy Statistics Database contains basic statistics for more than 220 countries/territories on production, trade, transformation and consumption (end-use) for solid, liquid, and gaseous fuels, electricity, and heat. It contains data in their original units (e.g. metric tonnes, GWh) as well as calorific values to allow interfuel comparison in a common energy unit (terajoules).

National Accounts Statistics

There are two United Nations Statistical Division (UNSD) databases on National Accounts, both available free of charge from the UNdata Portal at data.un.org:

1 – National Accounts Official Country Data Database

2 – National Accounts Estimates of Main Aggregates Database (the same data are also available at unstats.un.org/unsd/snaama in a slightly different format)
 

While the National Accounts Estimates of Main Aggregates Database can provide you with a comparable measure of countries' economies (e.g., constant 2010 prices, measures in US dollars and national currencies), it is not as detailed as the National Accounts Official Country Data Database (for example, there is no Gross Fixed Capital Formation broken down by industry). On the other hand, the latter displays only official data as provided by the country,


The full database is available for sale for USD $600; further pricing details can also be found here. This database is in MS Access format and UN Publications can provide a download link to it.
