Social Indicators of Development

September 1987 - April 1996

 

This series contains the World Bank's most detailed data collection for assessing human welfare to provide a picture of the social effects of economic development. Data are presented for over 170 economies, omitting only those for which data are inadequate. Few social indicators are collected annually, and social changes tend to occur slowly. Thus the data in the book are presented for three time periods: the mid-sixties, the mid-seventies, and the most recent estimate (1985 or 1990).

 

This publication was absorbed by the World Development Indicators. Before 1987, SID was for internal Bank use. 1986 was the inaugural edition in the new format.

 

Otherwise known as:

World Economic and Social Indicators (1975 - 1985)
