Here we have brought together all of our help and guidance resources. First, we have three pages that provide introductions to aid (Official Development Assistance, ODA) as well as other forms of financing for development; then you will find traditional help resources such as a comprehensive FAQ, a site map and glossary; and finally resources for users wanting to learn how to explore our databases. Should you have further questions, please write to email@example.com.
Aid statistics site map of main content by topic and level of detail. Includes filter function to suggest related content of interest to different users.
Glossary of key statistical terms and concepts used in DAC statistics.
3. Resources for users of the International Development Statistics online databases (IDS online)
The aid statistics database contains a wealth of data and is accessible through two powerful interfaces: the Query Wizard for International Development Statistics (QWIDS) and the OECD.Stat web platform.
The easiest way to search our databases as it automatically selects the most appropriate dataset to match your search.
The OECD's data warehouse. Access is recommended for users familiar with the content of individual DAC and CRS datasets.
It is highly recommended that users familiarise themselves with the functions of the interfaces and, particullay before using OECD.Stat, before they commence searching for data.
