World Bank Frees Up Development Data - Données sur le développement maintenant en libre accès

The World Bank Group announced on April 20th it will offer free access to more than 2,000 financial, business, health, economic and human development statistics that had mostly been available only to paying subscribers via a new website,
Experts say the Bank's open data initiative has the potential to stimulate more evidence-based policymaking in developing countries by bringing more researchers and innovative analysis into the development process. For the first time, data will be available in languages other than English, with an initial 330 indicators translated into French, Spanish and Arabic. “It’s important to make the data and knowledge of the World Bank available to everyone," World Bank President Robert B. Zoellick said. "Statistics tell the story of people in developing and emerging countries and can play an important part in helping to overcome poverty.”
