UQICD V 3.0 is the culmination of several years of intensive research dedicated to the development and compilation of panels of statistics on internationally comparable measures of purchasing power parities of currencies; real gross domestic product and its components; income distributions; and measures of inequality for 185 countries and for selected regional groupings covering the period 1970 to 2019.


The UQICD V3.0 is the only database of its kind which combines and provides data on real incomes and income inequality - two components that determine economic welfare of a society. An additional feature that distinguishes this database is the module that provides data for: (i) geographical regions of the world, (ii) for groups based on levels of per capita income as classified by the World Bank, and (iii) the administrative regions, OECD and EU.
