English language
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.

OS platform
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 We are neither willing nor obliged to participate in a dispute settlement procedure at a consumer arbitration board.

Data sources
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 Federal Statistical Office of Germany, the German Standing Committee on Geographical Names (StAGN), the German Weather Service, the OpenGeoDB, the European Commission, Wikipedia, the World Bank, the UNHCR, MaxMind's GeoLite, City Population by Thomas Brinkhoff, the World-Gazetteer by Stefan Helders, 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.

Image sources
Used images and graphics are own pictures as well as licensed content from Image Source, MEV, flickr (unter CC BY 2.0) and photocase .

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.

Definition of "Country"
The definition of the word "country" is often ambiguous. Both, here and elsewhere. A country has not to be a sovereign state, but can also be a dependency of another state like Greenland or Guam. What we consider as a "country" can be found here: What is a country? (German language only)

Not all, but at least some data can be downloaded as CSV files.
See our download area.
