NUS Libraries has subscribed to CEIC Data Manager, a database that provides a wealth of statistical data for your research needs.

 CEIC

We have subscribed to the following packages:

  • Global Database (details)
  • Sector Database (details)
  • China Premium Database (details)
  • India Premium Database (details)
  • Russia Premium Database (details)
  • Brazil Premium Database
  • Daily Database

Global database
The Global database covers more than 117 countries and over 1.4 million time series and should be your first stop if you are looking for specific national statistics.

China, India Premium Databases
In recent years, research on Asian countries like China and India has intensified. To support work in such areas, we have also subscribed to China Premium Database and India Premium Database as well as other premium databases for the other BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries. The China Premium Database has historical data running back to 1949, as well as regional data including city database of 286 prefecture level cities and 2000 counties in selected benchmark indicators. 

Sector, Daily and other Databases
The other databases are also useful, particularly the sector database which contains company data and standardised financial ratios by industry. You can also usually find association level statistics, for instance overall “Monthly Sales of Passenger cars” by all companies in the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.

All of the above databases provide standard features that come with statistical databases, including the ability to preview datasets with graphs and export chosen datasets to Excel. Note that due to the cost of the database, only 2 users can access CEIC Data Manager at the same time. So if you are unable to get in, please wait for a while before trying again. If you have any questions, or comments about CEIC Data Manager please feel free to contact me.
