Knoema makes datasets that are notoriously hard to work with easy to digest
There is often confusion that Knoema simply has a lot of public data. We don’t just assemble data in one location; we have data that is both easy and hard to find, and in some cases data that might be “public” but is not readily accessible, or accessible in a format that’s actually usable. This is a problem that we work tirelessly to solve at scale. For many difficult to work with datasets, our team has even designed the dissemination infrastructure for the country or agency that publishes it, ensuring the data is available for Knoema customers.

We’ve developed and refined a proprietary data management software toolkit that sits at the core of our data normalization, integration, and updating process
Data ingest mechanisms range from modern APIs and hundreds of custom software routines to the capture of non machine-readable PDFs, all of which are validated by a sophisticated and proven data management processes and team
Knoema doesn’t just archive and organize data, we make it discoverable
At Knoema, we don’t just want to have the world’s largest repository of data, we want to solve challenges related to finding and using it, so that our users can save time getting to exactly what they need. As such, we organize our data geographically in our data atlas, and also by industry, categories, and sources.
