The OECD Factbook 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 30 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.
The OECD is one of the world’s largest publishers in the fields of Economics and Public Policy. It is well-known for its authoritative, internationally comparable statistics, analysis, and outlooks, and for its groundbreaking online service, SourceOECD.
What's New in Version 2.31
fix database update issue
Great app, but... -- A SOLUTION! Sort of...
Useful, informative, and well designed. However, it hasn't been updated in years--that's OK as far as the data goes because 2011 isn't that old. But, the app was designed for the original iPhones with their 3.5" screens!
That means it doesn't take advantage of the larger, taller screens and shows the status bar (wifi, time, battery) much lower down.
So, it needs updating to the Big Screen!
Even as to the data, getting 2015-16 data would be good.
They have a new version out titled simply OECD Data!
It knows about the bigger devices and their larger screens-- and even has some 2012 data (why not more recent?).
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.
So, still waiting for a fully-functional update!
