The OECD Data App presents 100 economic indicators in a format specially designed for smartphones. Now, wherever you are, you have easy access to a comprehensive statistical picture of the world's major economies from the most reliable source: OECD.
The OECD Data App is organised around 12 themes such as population and migration, macroeconomic trends, and globalization. Each indicator includes a table showing the latest available data for the 34 OECD countries. When available, it also shows data from countries with which the OECD has close co-operation such as Brazil, Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa.
Each indicator also includes an illustrative bar chart, a definition of the variable, and a link to the full web version of the OECD Factbook 2013. That full version, which is free of charge, gives much longer time series, further analysis of trends, and also provides access to Excel spreadsheet versions of this data.
The OECD Data App is available in a range of other user-friendly formats: the print edition, OECD Factbook 2013, is the annual best seller of the OECD, the USB key gives full and permanent offline access to all the PDF and Excel files, and we have also loaded the indicators in a number of interactive, dynamic graphing and mapping tools. Discover all of them at this URL: http://www.oecd.org/publications/factbook.

Ratings and Reviews
Could be great, but... BROKEN!
Useful, informative, and well designed. However, the data is old from 2010-2012.
This is a new version of OECD FACTBOOK 2011!
It's designed for iPhones 4" and bigger. However, it will NOT scroll down on an iPod Touch, meaning you cannot see any countries after Estonia! Nor any topic beyond labor!
It also seems to require being on line-- the original included all the data with the app so that you could use it offline.
CORRECTION--it seems to have the data, it's just that it is very s-l-o-w to show it. You get a large spinning wheel each time you try to look at a specific indicator. Very poor. Quite staggering, in fact, given that the original showed data, tables, and charts instantly.
So, still waiting for a fully-functional update!
In the meantime, you're better off with the original-- OECD Factbook 2011.
Needs Technical Support
The OECD Factbook seems to be an excellent compilation of data but is crippled by incomplete app development. App has potential but is currently broken.
iphone 5s, latest IOS -- can't scroll through pages.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
