CountryData enables countries to share official national development data with the global user community. National and international data users can now easily access statistics used to track development progress at the country level. CountryData improves the visibility of data collected at the level closest to where development takes place - the country level. National statistical systems have identified priority development indicators based on their specific country context, and these data are now available via CountryData.
In addition, CountryData provides concise comparisons between national and international estimates of development indicators. Users can easily explore any differences between national and international series, and reasons for these differences are fully explained. Users can make informed decisions as to which data are most appropriate for their needs.
