Finding information about aviation.

What is a PEST Analysis?

A PEST analysis covers the political, economic, social and technological factors on a business, industry or country. Students in AVS4280 International Aviation are often required to complete a PEST analysis of a specific country. The resources on this page will help you find that information. For sources beyond what are covered on this page, please check out the statistics page on the Global and International Studies guide: 

Country Sources

Search Library Search

You should also consider searching Library Search (the main search box on the Library homepage) for sources on this. I would select the “Books and Media” radio button and use keywords such as:

Cuba political (or Cuban politics)

Japan economic

Germany business

India energy sector

Argentina social issues (or Argentina social policy)

Or add additional search terms for a more specific search.

See image below for an example of how this looks in Library Search.
