The Key Indicators Database has been developed to facilitate detailed analysis of trade, financial and socio-economic trends in the Asia-Pacific region. Access to this database is free-of-charge and the data can be exported to Microsoft Excel.

The database includes over 120 economic, social and environmental indicators for APEC’s 21 member economies dating back to APEC’s inception in 1989. Data are sourced from a range of reputable providers including The World Bank, International Monetary Fund and United Nations. A full list of the indicators found in the Key Indicators Database is provided below.

For the first time, APEC aggregates for a broad range of indicators are available, making it easier to examine the region as a whole. Aggregates for APEC are either sums or weighted averages based on population, GDP and trade data found in the Key Indicators Database, unless otherwise indicated. If a datum is unavailable for an economy, then that economy is not included in the calculation of the APEC aggregate for that year. Aggregates are calculated for APEC only if data are available for at least two-thirds of the APEC economies. In the case of weighted averages, aggregates are calculated for APEC only if the data available represents at least two-thirds of the value of weights in that year.

Please refer to the Glossary for a detailed definition and the data source of each indicator.
