Data Location


El Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Censos (INDEC) provide an up-to-date downloadable datasets in various format for research. However, this process involves a registration to the website. No license was found on the website.

In addition, several research papers have found the data on economic indicators, which are relevant for this Index are not accurate of completely missing. Therefore, while there is data around statistics, the relevant one does not exist and we decided to change the submission. Sources:
