Description provides up-to-date information and news on 192 countries of the world through three products available as part of our subscription to CountryWatch.

Country Reviews provide comprehensive and up-to-date political, economic, cultural, business, and environmental information, with a report for each of 192 countries.

Country Wire provides current country-specific news from 10 international news organizations with archives back about a year.

Country Watch Data is "an international database containing more than 230 times series or cross-sectional data series spanning socio-demographic, macroeconomic, economic sector, environmental, and cultural information."

CountryWatch includes colored country and regional maps. The easiest to print are those within the Country Review report for the country. There are also thematic maps of the world, accessible from the menu in the left column.

Once you've selected your country, the Country Wire coverage for that country is on the right of the page, and you can click on the entirety or portions of the Country Review and Country Watch Data from the menu in the left column. Country Wire and Country Watch Data are also accessible from the menu in the left column.
