Please excuse my sometimes terrible english. I am a native German and know about my lacks ;-) If you come across some wrong terms or grammar (and I'm sure you will), just feel free to send me an email.
The data is partly a result of own researches, but also comes from publicly accessible databases. To complete the statistics we also used the data from the German Federal Statistical Office
, the Standing Committee on Geographic Names (StAGN)
, the German Weather Service
, the OpenGeoDB
, the European Commission
, the World Bank
, the UNHCR
, GeoLite by MaxMind
, City Population by Thomas Brinkhoff
, World-Gazetteer by Stefan Helders (now populationmondiale.com
), the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
and the factbook of the Central Intelligence Agency, USA
. Almost all data has been subsequently adjusted, partly adapted to languages and restructured.
Individual data are not protectable and may of course be copied, used or distributed. Data collections (e.g. IQ by country
or Average body height
) caused time-consuming researches, evaluations, filtering and weighting of multiple sources and are indeed a subject of copyright.
If you need this data for school or university, but do not earn money and do not spread it otherwise, you are welcome to use them. In all other cases, where a not inconsiderable part of a data collection is copied, please just ask.
Timeliness of data
The database contains several millions of individual data. Unfortunately it is neither possible nor would such a project still be fun, if for each number a source indication and the stand should be looked up, saved and displayed again. Essential data such as economic data or population figures of countries are updated several times a year
. City populations with less than 1 million people once in a blue moon, the rest of the data roughly annually.
Online dispute resolution pursuant to §14.1 ODR-VO: The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution (OS), which can be found at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/
. We are neither willing nor obliged to participate in a dispute settlement procedure at a consumer arbitration board.
