Researching a Country: Strategy 2, Subject/Term

Strategy 2 - Search on a Subject and use the Filters to retrieve information by country

search on a subject 

For this strategy, search using a subject - GDP, a specific crop, commodity, or any other topic of interest about your country - and use the filters on the left to narrow your search.


For this strategy, the Countries & Regions filter is the most important. 


Open up the reference to the continent where your country is, and use the "By Country" filter to see data about all countries in that continent on that topic.

Once you've filtered By Country, use the other filters if you need to be more specific. 


Note:  Often, publications from Federal Agencies (U.S. government agencies) will have data on other countries. 


Look at the content notation, under the title information, to see what the publication is about and if it can help you.
