Cross-country, cross-sector, thematic research data from the World Bank's main research unit

This catalog provides the development community with research microdata used to generate some of the outputs of the World Bank Development Research Group. The data are provided publicly to foster the creation of new knowledge.

The Research Group, under the World Bank's Chief Economist Office, is the main research unit in the Bank. It undertakes research that may be cross-country and across sectors. It also undertakes in-depth, systematic investigations of policy experience within single countries where this is expected to generate insights of a broader nature.
