The SDW is a fully metadata driven application based on the SDMX data model. SDW's data structure and dataset concept gives an overview of such metadata. The list of datasets describes the SDW data content and the SDW's functions show how the users can accessed them. More information can be accessed through the site directory and glossary.

SDW offers different views to the data tables, data charts and displays their associated Metadata page by using the top of the page toolbar. Pre-defined Reports are also accessible with the underlying data from the side navigation hierarchy.
There are many ways to browse for data in SDW. One can access pre-defined navigation hierarchies or search using text or series keys and filter/refine its data selection.
Data in SDW can be downloaded on demand and in various formats.
Semi-regular downloads can be performed but for more regular downloads, a SDMX 2.1 Restful Web Service is offered and more appropriate. Users can be notified about changes in data using their Data Group(s).
Registering on the portal offers the users additional options such as: display & presentation options, managing of their Data Group(s) & Report(s) Basket(s) and benefitting from an email or HTTP notification on these Data Groups.
