Esri Standard Demographics provide a consistent data source and methodology across approximately 170 countries and regions. Standard Demographics are sourced from Michael Bauer Research GmbH.
Many data variables are homogenous across these regions, allowing users to quickly compare global markets and communities. Generally, Standard Demographics provide a broad picture of a data category.
To see the Standard Demographics available for each country or region, visit the regional data tables for Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania, and South America, or visit an individual country or region page to learn more about that region.
The following examples are representative of the available Standard Demographics variables and data categories. Each country or region provides reference documents that list the available variable attributes for that region.
