Worldwide study of cooperatives

Worldwide study of cooperatives

UNDESA-DSPD is currently conducting a study of cooperatives throughout the world, presently placing its focus on cooperatives in China and India.

A database will be prepared showing consolidated and sector-level data on cooperatives across industries. The data will include as many cooperative sectors as possible (e.g., financial services, agriculture, credit unions, social and public services, commercial sales and marketing, housing, utilities).
To gather the data, the study will use existing data sources both from government ministries and cooperative associations.

The project will compile the number of cooperatives, the number of clients or members served by each cooperative, and the number of offices. To the extent possible, the project will also compile key economic indicators including annual turnovers, annual gross revenue and total assets at the national level.
