Good news for members with an interest in historic data! The Bank of England has recently digitized the International Abstract of Economic Statistics, which ISI published as the main abstract of International Economic Statistics before the UN was set up.

The publications provide indices of economic activity for 15 countries, including finance, prices, wages, trade, outputs, transport and employment. It also provides a list of economic events for most countries. If you look under 'cross country data sets' you will see two publications, for 1919-30 and for 1931-36.

The data can be accessed via this link.
