Sometimes the data you need is available for free on the country's statistical agency's website. Not sure where that is? Try the 2 lists below.
You can also use LINC to search for statistics. Do a LINC search by subject.
Look out in particular for subject headings that say --statistics--periodicals, these are usually official statistics handbooks or yearbooks by each country's statistics department/division/office/bureau and are full of information.
Sometimes a obscure statistic can be found in a diagram in a book or journal article. Do a search in Google Books or Google Scholar to check for this. Google Books might not give you access to the full book but limited preview mode might allow access to the diagram or graph. Journal articles often state where the data source is from, so this will give you a clue as well where to look for the statistics you need.
