Statistics data is hidden in files full of text, graphs and tabular data. Not very easy to quickly find and use.

This submission is valid, thank you Serah Rono for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. Removed TXT format as could only find data with PDF. Removed unemployment data from B3 as not able to find within any documents or on website. Amended B6 to no as population outdated and no unemployment data found (GDP updated quarterly).
