At North Data, we continuously work on adding new countries to our data. In order for you to know exactly which information is available for specific countries, how often that information is updated and how we put together our key figures, we made available the following tables with everything you might want to know.

Since different countries have different sources of information, the features that we provide for each country also varies.
