Data analytics North America

US — DataMarket and ProQuest have launched a data set which they claim will be one of the largest collections of economic, demographic and social data in the world.

ProQuest International DataSets is to be marketed by ProQuest to its college, university and library partners worldwide in the autumn and will combine the full content set and technology architecture from DataMarket along with content from both ProQuest and Oxford Economics’ array of quantitative and qualitative research.

“Creating resources that can support in-depth data mining takes a unique skill set,” said Susan Bokern, ProQuest vice-president, information solutions. “Matching the strengths of ProQuest’s team of statistical data experts with those of DataMarket and Oxford Economics is producing a particularly rich and expansive resource.”
