Research resources and data bases

In this post you will find different research resources.


The World Trade Organization (WTO) deals with the global rules of trade between nations. Its main function is to ensure that trade flows as smoothly, predictably and freely as possible.


“Documents and resources” provides access to the official documents of the WTO’s councils and committees as well as to a range of other resources, such as trade statistics, economic research, WTO publications, videos, audio and photos. Here you can also find the “legal texts” — the body of WTO agreements that collectively form the legal framework of the WTO.


The GHDx is the world’s most comprehensive catalog of surveys, censuses, vital statistics, and other health-related data. It’s the place to start your health data search.



SEIA produces a variety of research and supporting resources for the solar industry, ranging from full reports to short factsheets. This data helps inform policymakers and business leaders alike on the current state of solar and where the industry is headed.


A report by The Solar Foundation, with research assistance from the Solar Energy Industries Association. While thousands of schools have already realized the cost savings and other benefits of installed solar energy capacity, this opportunity is generally underutilized. The large, flat rooftops typically found on public and private K-12 school buildings throughout the United States make many of these properties excellent candidates for rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) or solar thermal systems.


Stories about people are all around us twenty-four hours a day. They take the form of novels, documentaries, radio interviews and more. And for every story we see or hear, countless others – just as compelling, just as important – are never told. Stories about turning points in our own lives. Stories about the rich experiences of our older relatives. Stories about the heritage and values of our communities. These stories deserve to be given life, which is why the Association of Personal Historians (APH) exists. Members of APH help other people create personal histories, including memoirs, video tributes, autobiographies, biographies, family histories, heritage cookbooks, community histories, corporate and organizational histories, legacy letters and ethical wills. A personal history can take the form of a book, documentary, video, website, CD-ROM, DVD, scrapbook or photo collage – even a song or quilt.

Our vision, quite simply, is a world in which the story of every person, family, community, and organization is recorded and preserved.
