Open Data Initiative

As part of the open data initiative, the World Bank launches the new open data initiative, which provides free, open and easy access to statistics and indicators about development. The Bank has also opened up access to the Global Development Finance, Africa Development Indicators, Global Economic Monitor, and indicators from the Doing Business Report.

This step is long overdue. Opening access to the Bank’s data is good news for everyone who is interested in global health and development and wants to get a quick overview of the latest trends or access the data for policy-making, research, and advocacy purposes.
