IL53 - Introduction to Economics for International Studies: Welcome IL 53

Comparative Country Data Study & Analysis

Welcome students! My name is Matt Schirano and I am a librarian here at Fairfield University. Today, you will begin gathering data for your Comparative Country Data Study and Analysis assignment. Please feel free to reach out to me or any of the research librarians after class for further assistance.

The idea of this project is to familiarize international studies students with commonly used, credible data sources that compile and publish economic and other data that can inform one's understanding of a particular country or region. In each part, the student will be asked to find and organize the data, review and analyze it, then explain it given his/her understanding of events taking place in the country of inquiry at the time. In the end, comparative graphs will enable a cross-country reporting of development over the designated timeframe.
