Northern Rock Foundation’s Third Sector Trends Study is a ground-breaking research programme on the scale, dynamics and needs of the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in North East England and Cumbria. The Study is for the first time providing robust, comprehensive and freely available local and regional evidence to describe the sector. The Study will help sector organisations, infrastructure agencies, funders and government bodies who all need better information about the characteristics and activities of the third sector groups.
Who enjoys the fastest internet? South Koreans do, according to Ookla- the average South Korean Internet connection is more than 3x faster than the average connection in the US. Eastern European countries like Latvia and Lithuania are also at the top of the pool. Within the US, there is tremendous variation by state. Delaware, a very small state, has the fastest connections (comparable to those in Belgium), whereas Alaska, the biggest state, has the slowest connections (comparable to those in Serbia). <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

The United Nations Statistics Division is aware of various schemes, being circulated via e-mails, from the Internet web sites, and via regular mail or fax, falsely stating that they are issued by or associated with the United Nations or its officials. These schemes may seek to extract money and in some cases personal details from the recipients of such correspondence. Such schemes are fraudulent, for further information please read the position of the UN on this page http://www.un.org/fraud/ .

Online Data Sources Political Governance Stability
Brief Description: The Polity conceptual scheme is unique in that it examines concomitant qualities of democratic and autocratic authority in governing institutions, rather than discreet and mutually exclusive forms of governance. This perspective envisions a spectrum of governing authority that spans from fully institutionalized autocracies through mixed, or incoherent, authority regimes (termed "anocracies") to fully institutionalized democracies . The "Polity Score" captures this regime authority spectrum on a 21-point scale ranging from -10 (hereditary monarchy) to +10 (consolidated democracy). The Polity scores can also be converted to regime categories: we recommend a three-part categorization of "autocracies" (-10 to -6), "anocracies" (-5 to +5 and the three special values: -66, -77, and -88), and "democracies" (+6 to +10); see "Global Trends in Governance, 1800-2011" above.
The European Quality of Life Survey is carried out every four years. The European quality of life survey ( EQLS ) examines a range of issues, such as employment, income, education, housing, family, health, work-life balance, life satisfaction and perceived quality of society. The survey was carried out for the first time in 2003, covering 28 countries (25 Member States and three candidate countries). The second iteration took place in 2007 and the full descriptive overview is now available. A number of more detailed secondary analyses will follow.
The Eurobarometer data service website attempts to offer value added services for the social sciences, researchers or students, interested in finding out about the potentials of and the access to the primary data generated over four decades through this large scale European wide survey program. It is set up as a compendium-type microsite in order to provide an broad overview of available information, materials, retrieval facilities and ways to access the data. For general data archive information you will be directed to the main GESIS website, whenever appropriate.
