World Development Indicators

The World Bank’s flagship collection of time series data is available for 75 $ and is updated for 2007. This is a very reasonable alternative for any data subscription as it is the most exhaustive and credible source of data.


All the data , and all the countries !!

 World Bank data remains the most comprehensive source of independent data .

 It is recommended for all research related activities.

I quote the Bank itself ”

World Development Indicators (WDI) publication is the World Bank’s premier annual compilation of data about development. The 2007 WDI includes more than 900 indicators in over 80 tables organized in 6 sections: World View, People, Environment, Economy, States and Markets, and Global Links. How to Order


Data are shown for 152 economies with populations of more than 1 million, as well as for Taiwan, China, in selected tables. Table 1.6 presents selected indicators for 56 other economies—small economies with populations between 30,000 and 1 million and smaller economies if they are members of the World Bank.”
