Privatization Barometer Database
The 'Privatization Barometer - PB' is the first Internet portal dedicated to privatisation processes in the enlarged Europe. The goal of the PB is to provide academics, researchers, financial analysts, institutional investors, international agencies, policy-makers and media operators with a focal point on privatisation issues managed by an independent source and strongly based on research outputs.
The site website was launched in 2004 and has become the official provider of privatisation data to OECD and the World Bank. The Privatization Barometer Database is a fully searchable database of privatization transactions from 1977 to present, monthly updated. For each transaction, PB Database, displays the effective date of transaction, the company name and country, the primary SIC code and Sector description, the percentage of capital sold, the method of sale and the marketplace.
