New Content in World Development Indicators

One of the major changes is that WDI Online now has 854 indicators available for 209 economies and 18 groups from 1960 to 2007, where data are available. This is an increase of over 100 indicators from 2007!

The other major change in the data is that we are no longer showing a combined entry for Serbia and Montenegro, these are now shown separately. Please note however, for Serbia, some indicators, such as those series for which data appear only for Serbia and not Montenegro--e.g. aid, environment, external debt, balance of payments, various social indicators excluding population--continue to include data for Montenegro through 2005.
