OECD Competition Trends


In 2018, the OECD launched an initiative to develop a database of general statistics relating to competition agencies, including data on enforcement and information on advocacy initiatives. 

OECD Competition Trends supports informed policymaking and contributes to improving competition law and policy around the world by providing multi-year data on a large number of economic and legal indicators. Data is mainly presented as aggregate-level data, combining the data of a certain number of individual jurisdictions. The aggregate-level data includes an analysis (a) for all participating jurisdictions, (b) comparing OECD and non-OECD jurisdictions, and (c) per geographical region. Access below all reports to date.
