World Bank interactive data map, wonk treasure trove | 

Increasingly, organizations with massive amounts of interesting and important information are putting their data online in forms that are both easily accessible and understandable.

The World Bank likely has more data relevant to issues in global development, health and poverty than any other organization. And now they have made it available to the public here.

Though the site may look, at first glance, about as exciting as cold oatmeal, a closer look likely will make data wonks’ hearts beat faster.

World Bank

It’s an incredible treasure trove of country-level information organized into further categories such as agriculture, aid effectiveness (that will cause some debate), environment, health, labor and so on. Each of these are broken down into subcategories as well.

Have fun you wonks!
