Country level (Macro data) ●Collected at the country level (aggregated variables) ●Originated at government agencies and international databases ●Most common data includes: production of the resource (oil, natural gas, copper, etc.), exports and imports, revenues and prices. ●It is Primary data (sources)
  14. 14. Project level (Micro data) ●Information on projects, blocks, fields, and concessions (usually geocoded) ●Companies also publish data on projects ●Governments disseminate maps, contracts, and lists of blocks/fields/concessions ●Contracts are also published (sometimes they do not match with the projects) ●Normally it is not primary data (lack of official databases)
  15. 15. Ok, but where can I find it? 4
