Free World Bank Database

One of the difficulties that I face in UMS is when asking students to do research-oriented project paper. The main obstacle is data accessibility, because our library doesn’t subscribe to key economic and financial databases. Luckily, the courses that I taught at the moment are quantitative-based or in the area of economics. The free database that I recommended to my students is the one provided by World Bank, in particularly World Development Indicators (click here).
