The International Data Base (IDB) is a computerized data bank containing statistical tables of demographic and socioeconomic data for many of the countries and areas of the world. The IDB was created in the United States Census Bureau's International Programs Center (IPC) and provides quick access to specialized information, with emphasis on demographic measures, for individual countries or selected groups of countries. The IDB combines data from country sources (especially censuses and surveys) with IPC's estimates and projections to provide information dating back as far as 1950 and as far ahead as 2050. The major types of data available in the IDB include: population by age and sex, vital rates, infant mortality, life tables, fertility and child survivorship, migration, marital status, family planning, ethnicity, religion, language, literacy, labor force, employment, income, and households.
