Country Risk Ratings on IHS Global Insight (update December 2014)

Edit: Updated again 15 December 2014; there are now fewer steps so it has become easier again.

It can be difficult to log into IHS Global Insight (formerly just Global Insight) for some institutions, and then to find the country risk ratings is hard too. Risks and Ratings has now been moved out of IHS Global Insight to IHS Connect, another part of their website.

For staff and students at The University of Manchester, these steps should offer some assistance.

  1. Visit the Library’s Database A-Z page for IHS Global Insight: and click on the link to launch it.
  2. Click on the ‘IHS Customer Login’ menu, click on IHS Connect.
  3. You are now on the ‘IHS Connect’ website. On the main menu bar, hover on ‘Insight’ then click ‘Risks and Ratings’ then ‘Country Risk’.

You should then see a screen like the following.

The tool is very easy to use, allowing you to sort the columns and change the time period.

      Dear Rachel, it appears that IHS has changed its website so our instructions are out of date. Apologies for the confusion.

      I will work on producing improved instructions with screen shots. In the meantime, please set up your VPN connection then visit IHS Connect and you should be at the right place.
