GlobalStat is defined by a broad understanding of globalisation. As a far-reaching process it goes well beyond global economic integration and impacts on different as well as diverse aspects of personal, social, cultural, political, economic and environmental spheres of human lives and interactions.
GlobalStat’s structure and methodology are sensitive to these interrelations that have repercussions on the overall performance of the international community and nation states. With this particular approach, GlobalStat contributes to the understanding of the interconnections between human living conditions and trends of globalisation.
Transparency and accountability of GlobalStat’s data collection and aggregation methods are essential in order to make data easy to use, understandable and comparable. GlobalStat’s comprehensive Methodological Guide offers detailed information on the statistical methods applied, the calculation formula developed and the aggregation levels chosen.
