Here’s a little #WednesdayWisdom for you, The World Factbook is an online resource you should have in your arsenal of helpful websites. The site is produced by the CIA and provides up-to-date detailed information about countries around the world.
If you’re doing research on a specific country and need some background information this is a great (and credible) site to head to. The World Factbook offers information in the following areas: Geography, People and Society, Government, Economy, Energy, Communications, Transportation, Military, and Transnational Issues.
And this site isn’t just useful for academic research purposes. It can also help you out if you’re getting ready to travel somewhere new. Or just want to learn a little more about a place you’ve heard about in the news.
