In Wikipedia articles of countries a lot of statistics are given about the country at hand. For example in the Venezuela article, demographics are described in terms of ethnic groups (e.g. 51.6% are Mestizo), religion (71% catholic), and total population size and population density. There is GDP statistics, Gini-index, Human Development Index, and more.

Is there any openly available dataset with this type of data for many/all countries?

I'm of course aware that there is going to be some missing data within such a dataset.

  • Please edit your question. Don't describe what Wikipedia does, tell us what data you want, specifically; this type of data is not enough. (Read this for tips) – Jan Doggen Jul 13 '17 at 6:54
  • BTW You can search the site for all data-requests for countries, maybe some of the things you want were already asked. – Jan Doggen Jul 13 '17 at 6:55
