Reliable quantitative data is essential for understanding economic and social development because it provides evidence—evidence to set policies, monitor progress, and evaluate results. World Development Indicators allows users to monitor progress toward the Millennium Development Goals. These goals, agreed to by all member states of the United Nations, establish specific, measurable targets for development in the early 21st century.

In addition to the most recent data presented in the print edition, complete time-series data from 1960 onwards are available in the CD-ROM and online versions of World Development Indicators.
