GFS: Accessing data vintages and print-ready data tables (PDF)

To access data vintages, print-ready data tables, and methodological information for GFS please navigate to the "Archive" tab of the GFS dataset portal by clicking on "Archive".



On the "Archive" tab, you will see five sections:
  1. Publications and Methodological Notes
    This section replaces the "Archived Documents" section and contains GFS yearbooks since 2010 as well as vintages of the GFS Introductory Notes (starting with the 2017 edition). A new vintage of the GFS Introductory Notes will be made available whenever a change to the text is necessary. The final vintage of the GFS Yearbook (GFS 2017) was published in spring 2018. From 2019 onwards, only updates to Introductory Notes, metadata, and data will be published.
  2. Metadata
    This section is new and provides access to vintages of GFS country metadata through reports, in line with the annual vintages of the data, starting with the 2017 vintage.
  3. Query or Download Data
    This section remains unchanged and provides access to annual vintages of GFS databases through the Query and Bulk Download interfaces. Please note that this section is now located in the center column of the page.
  4. Tables
    This section remains unchanged and provides access to annual vintages of predefined DOT tables. Please note that this section is now located in the bottom half of the center column of the page.  
  5. Country and World Tables in PDF Format
    This new section on the right-hand side of the page contains a list of annual vintages of GFS country and world tables (as in the yearbooks).
    -- To find the country and vintage you are looking for, you can either scroll and/or use the pagination, or you can use the country and vintage filters for annual tables (6) to select the countries and/or vintages to be displayed in the list. 
    -- To download and open a particular data table in PDF format, click on the respective country/vintage combination in the list.


The PDF files very closely resemble the printed world and country tables in the GFS Yearbook.
