World Development Indicators

1978 - present

 

The World Development Indicators (WDI) publication is a collection of time-series data for 214 economies, with many indicators going back more than 50 years. WDI provides cross-country comparable statistics about development and people’s lives around the globe. It is divided into six sections: world view, people, environment, economy, states and markets, and global links. New online tables, previously published in the book, are now available from wdi.worldbank.org/tables and they provide data from the most up-to-date database. It is produced by the World Bank's Data Group.

 

This series began as the statistical annex to the World Development Report and changed format to its own series in 1996/1997.
