Extension of the World Bank's data portal
The World Bank's new data catalogue provides access to over 3,000 datasets and includes microdata, time series statistics and geospatial data. The catalogue is part of the Open Data initiative launched by the World Bank in 2010. This new catalogue is an extension of the existing World Bank Open Data portal and includes datasets that were previously unpublished due to restrictions on re-use. Rather than leaving the data unpublished the World Bank now decided to make many of them available and document any restrictions on how they can be used.
