MINSTAT is a new and unique database on mining and quarrying and utilities sectors. In the past decades, we have observed a gradual depletion of natural resources worldwide. At the same time, demand for such resources as crude oil, natural gas and water is soaring due to the rapid industrial growth and the overall increase of the world population. In response to the increased interests from data users, UNIDO released its first biennial publication of the World Statistics on Mining and Utilities in 2010. Now users can obtain mining and utilities data in electronic form through online access to this website or by ordering the database on CD Rom. It contains time series data for more than 100 countries for the period 1995 onwards. Data are presented at 2- and 3-digit level of ISIC Revision 3 and 4.
The Statistics Pro module creates statistics with aggregated data. The data is stored in a new table, which is updated with a cron run. This statistics module provides statistical results of nodes, comments and users. Aggregated statistical data from nodes, comments and users are stored even if the access log table or the watchdog table have been deleted. For presenting the data the Views module is used. When Statistics Pro detects the core Statistics module, the Charts and Graphs module or the Views Charts module it enables specific features dependent on each one of these modules like page visualization reports and graphs. This module is not a replacement for the core Statistics module but offers useful enhancements.
