International Futures (IFs) modeling application contains a large historical database that enables model users to explore patterns, understand relationships and estimate parameters. The database consists of a large collection of country level time series tables covering a large number of variables on IFs model issue areas like population, education, health, agriculture, energy, economics, environment, infrastructure, governance and international politics. The database is compiled, in most cases, from publicly available cross-country data series, e.g., World Development Indicators, UNESCO Institute for Education database on education, FAO database on agricultural production, Correlates of War data on conflicts etc. IFs data team add new series to the database and update the existing ones on a regular basis.
