World Development Indicators 2012
Source: World Bank
From the press release:
The 2012 edition of World Development Indicators (WDI), released today, includes updated data on global development, the quality of people's lives, the environment, the economy, the functioning of states and markets, and global links - how actions in one part of the world affect people elsewhere. ...
WDI 2012 includes data for the first ten years of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), providing an important data resource for the Global Monitoring Report (GMR), being released tomorrow. Measured against 1990 benchmarks, progress accelerated in the past decade, lifting millions out of poverty, enrolling millions of children in school, and sharply reducing the loss of life due to preventable causes. ...
New data in this year’s WDI include more recent data on poverty at international poverty lines, for more countries, including global and regional estimates; measures of malnutrition disaggregated by sex; health indicators disaggregated by income quintile; carbon dioxide emissions by economic sector, and data on climate variability, exposure to impact, and resilience.
