On NAFTA, real facts, and Statista...

Published January 27, 2017 by Mark Bodnar

As you may have heard, there's been some talk lately about reopening and renegotiating the NAFTA agreement. If you'd like to join that conversation and want to contribute more than just "alternative facts," consider consulting this handy dossier of statistics from our newest database: Statista... 

North American Free Trade Agreement - Statista Dossier

This dossier offers graphs on the agreement's effects on trade balance, employment, immigration, as well as current public opinion.

As with all of the statistical dossiers in Statista, downloads are in PDF or PPT formats only (as opposed to Statista's individual charts which are available in more formats). 

However, you can follow the footnotes below each of the dossier's charts to get to the entry for the same chart in the database, complete with options to extract raw data or link out to the original source.  That's how I got to this chart on the "Percentage of Americans who view foreign trade as an opportunity for the U.S. from 2001 to 2016, by political party." (Interesting to see the lines cross around 2011.)

P.S.: Don't forget that we have Statista as a pilot subscription until the end of 2017. Any and all feedback about it would be much appreciated! Did it save you time? Did it play a significant role in your research? Send me a note!
