Sanctions by the Numbers

Each month, the Sanctions by the Numbers newsletter and series offers comprehensive analysis and visualization of major patterns, changes, and developments in U.S. sanctions policy and economic statecraft. Each edition highlights key thematic issues in sanctions policy, such as human rights and corruption, as well as geographical regions like Iran, China, Russia, and North Korea.

The Sanctions by the Numbers series provides data-driven insights about key trends in U.S. sanctions policy, serving as a resource for economic and trade coverage by The Wall Street Journal, Reuters, Axios, and other leading media outlets. Originally launched as a set of online commentaries in February 2020, the series presents key findings from an ongoing data-tracking project conducted by the CNAS Energy, Economics, and Security Program. Members of the program collect and analyze sanctions data from publicly available government sources, such as the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
