Countries and regions from all over the world are represented. Because of large variations in data availability, the amount of information may differ greatly from one topic to another. Each Data Entry has a section that explains sources and methods, with links to original documents. Because OWID so meticulously mines the statistical record of human progress, it has standalone value as a bibliography of key sources across all aspects of a topic.
