The African Development Bank Group (AfDB) is committed to supporting statistical development in Africa as a sound basis for designing and managing effective development policies for reducing poverty on the continent. Reliable and timely data is critical to setting goals and targets as well as evaluating project impact. Reliable data constitutes the single most convincing way of getting the people involved in what their leaders and institutions are doing. It also helps them to get involved in the development process, thus giving them a sense of ownership of the entire development process. The AfDB has a large team of researchers who focus on the production of statistical data on economic and social situations. The data produced by the institution’s statistics department constitutes the background information in the Bank’s flagship development publications. Besides its own publication, the AfDB also finances studies in collaboration with its partners. The Statistics Department aims to stand as the primary source of relevant, reliable and timely data on African development processes, starting with the data generated from its current management of the Africa component of the International Comparison Program (ICP-Africa). The Department discharges its responsibilities through two divisions: The Economic and Social Statistics Division (ESTA1); The Statistical Capacity Building Division (ESTA2)

The Australian Data Archive (ADA) provides a national service for the collection and preservation of digital research data and to make these data available for secondary analysis by academic researchers and other users. Data are stored in seven sub-archives: Social Science, Historical, Indigenous, Longitudinal, Qualitative, Crime & Justice and International. Along with Australian data, ADA International is also a repository for studies by Australian researchers conducted in other countries, particularly throughout the Asia-Pacific region. The ADA International data catalogue includes links to studies from countries including New Zealand, Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, and several other countries. In 2017 the archive systems moved from the existing Nesstar platform to the new ADA Dataverse platform https://dataverse.ada.edu.au/
The projects include airborne, ground-based and ocean measurements, social science surveys, satellite data use, modelling studies and value-added product development. Therefore, the BAOBAB data portal enables to access a great amount and a large variety of data: - 250 local observation datasets, that have been collected by operational networks since 1850, long term monitoring research networks and intensive scientific campaigns; - 1350 outputs of a socio-economics questionnaire; - 60 operational satellite products and several research products; - 10 output sets of meteorological and ocean operational models and 15 of research simulations. Data documentation complies with metadata international standards, and data are delivered into standard formats. The data request interface takes full advantage of the database relational structure and enables users to elaborate multicriteria requests (period, area, property…).

The Economics & Business Data Center (EBDC) is a combined platform for empirical research in business administration and economics of the Ludwig–Maximilian University of Munich (LMU) and the Ifo Institute and aims at opening new fields for empirical research in business administration and economics. In this regard, the EBDC provides innovative datasets of German companies, containing both survey data of the Ifo Institute as well as external balance sheet data. Therefore, the tasks of the EBDC also include the procurement and administration of data sources for research and teaching, the central provision, updating and documentation of external databases, as well as the acquisition of corresponding support tools. Beyond that, the EBDC serves as a contact and central coordinator on licensing economic firm-level datasets for LMU’s Munich School of Management and LMU’s Department of Economics and supports researchers and guests of the LMU and the Ifo Institute on site. In the future, it will also conduct academic conferences on research with company data.
Pandora is an open data platform devoted to the study of the human story. Data may be deposited from various disciplines and research topics that investigate humans from their early beginnings until present in addition to their environmental context (e.g. archeology, anthropology history, ancient DNA, isotopes, zooarchaeology, archaeobotany, and paleoenvironmental and paleoclimatic studies, etc.). Pandora allows autonomous data communities to self-manage their webspace and community membership. Data communities self-curate their data plus other supporting resources. Datasets may be assigned a new DOI and a schema markup is employed to improve data findability. Pandora also allows for links to datasets stored externally and having previously assigned DOIs. Through this, it becomes possible to establish data networks devoted to specific topics that may combine a mix of datasets stored either within Pandora or externally.

The United States Census Bureau (officially the Bureau of the Census, as defined in Title 13 U.S.C. § 11) is the government agency that is responsible for the United States Census. It also gathers other national demographic and economic data. As a part of the United States Department of Commerce, the Census Bureau serves as a leading source of data about America's people and economy. The most visible role of the Census Bureau is to perform the official decennial (every 10 years) count of people living in the U.S. The most important result is the reallocation of the number of seats each state is allowed in the House of Representatives, but the results also affect a range of government programs received by each state. The agency director is a political appointee selected by the President of the United States.
