The World Development Indicators CD-ROM contains time series data for more than 200 economies from 1960-2008, single-year observations, and spreadsheets on many topics. It contains more than 1,000 country tables and the text from the World Development Indicators 2010 print edition.

World Development Indicators 2010
presents the most current and accurate development data on both a national level and aggregated globally. It allows you to monitor the progress made toward meeting the Millennium Development Goals endorsed by the United Nations and its member countries, the World Bank, and a host of partner organizations. These goals, which focus on development and the elimination of poverty, serve as the agenda for international development efforts.

The Windows based CD ROM  format permits users to search for and retrieve data in spreadsheet form, create maps and charts, and fully download them into other popular software programs for study or presentation purposes. The CD ROM is available to order from the World Bank for US$50.

In addition, please note that the World Bank Group now provides free, open, and easy access to its comprehensive set of data on living standards around the globe–some 2,000 indicators, including hundreds that go back 50 years. The data is available in Arabic, French, and Spanish in addition to English and is available at http://data.worldbank.org/.
