Access to CountryWatch Data: CountryWatch.com is an information provider for businesses, schools, universities, libraries and individuals who need up-to-date information and news on the countries of the world and for the public and private sector organizations with global operations and interests. The management of CountryWatch.com has extensive international business and academic experience and, using this experience, has created, in a concise and useful form, a key set of political, economic, and business information for its clients in the form of Country Reviews and the Country Wire.

Country Information Data Sample is a small sample of a much larger dataset of information that will be available in a searchable format on the CountryWatch.com site (<http://www.countrywatch.com>) by December 1, 2000.
The following steps were performed by ESRI: Extracted table from CountryWatch.com in an electronic mail system attachment. Renamed several attributes to match attribute names found in World Countries shapefiles. Added records of countries present in the World Countries shapefiles allowing a better match when joining those data sets to this table. Added Cw_data attribute to show which records were from CountryWatch.com and which were supplied by ESRI. Added Politi_map attribute. Added the values for the country records supplied by ESRI for attributes Fips_cntry, Cntry_name, Politi_map, and Cw_data. Calculated the values to -99, for the country records supplied by ESRI for all other attributes, to indicate data not supplied by CountryWatch.com. Edited the spelling of the names in the Cntry_name attribute to match names in the World Countries shapefiles.
Note: China and Taiwan are considered one country. In the World Countries shapefiles they are two separate countries.
