WDI: World Development Indicators database

Posted by lrath on July 1, 2008

Do you need a country’s Consumer Price Index, health expenditure per capita, literacy rate, exchange rate, imports/exports, or other development indicators?

Then use the Newman Library database called WDI: World Development Indicators. This database provides international social and economic data for over 550 development indicators and time series data for over 207 countries and 18 country groups. Includes social, economic, financial, natural resources, and environmental indicators from 1960 to 2000, where data are available.

To use: select a country or countries, select a topic in one of the series (Balance of payments; Development framework; Environment; Exchange rates & prices; External debt; Financial statistics; Government finance; National accounts; Social indicators; and Trade), and then choose a year or range of years.
