    World Development Indicators (WDI) is the primary World Bank collection of development indicators, compiled from officially recognized international sources. It presents the most current and accurate global development data available, and includes national, regional and global estimates.

  • Wealth Accounts

    Total wealth is calculated by summing up estimates of each component of wealth: produced capital, natural capital, human capital, and net foreign assets. The construction of the wealth accounts is guided by the concepts and methods of the System of National Accounts (SNA), the handbook developed by the UN Statistical Commission used by virtually all countries to compile their national economic accounts. While values for produced capital and net foreign assets are generally derived from widely used methods based on observed transactions for these assets, the value of natural capital and human capital must be estimated. The approach to asset valuation is based on the concept that the value of an asset should equal the discounted stream of expected net earnings (resource rents or wages) that it earns over its lifetime.

  • WDI Database Archives

    The WDI Database Archives (WDI-DA) contains previous versions of the World Development Indicators database, including indicators that have been discontinued. Data are drawn from all available electronic releases going back to 1989. Users should exercise caution when comparing data from different versions, as the same codes have been used to reference series with different base years or different valuations of a country's local currency. For example, the series code for constant US dollar GDP (NY.GDP.MKTP.KD), which is currently based in 2015, has been used in previous editions when the base year was 1987, 1995, 2000, 2005, and 2010. Please note that when an indicator is available in the WDI Archives and in the current WDI database, only the current metadata for this indicator is available in both databases. We will be working to improve the usability of the archives by harmonizing codes and names to the extent possible and adding additional metadata.
