    The Little Green Data Book 2017
    (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2017-07-10) World Bank
    The Little Green Data Book 2017 is based on World Development Indicators 2017 and its online database. Defining, gathering, and disseminating international statistics is a collective effort of many people and organizations. The indicators presented in World Development Indicators are the fruit of decades of work at many levels, from the field workers who administer censuses and household surveys to the committees and working parties of the national and international statistical agencies that develop the nomenclature, classifications, and standards fundamental to the international statistical system. Nongovernmental organizations have also made important contributions. We are indebted to the World Development Indicators partners, as detailed in World Development Indicators 2017 .

    World Development Indicators 2017
    (Washington, DC, 2017-04) World Bank
    This year the World Development Indicators database has been improved to include more indicators that cover the Sustainable Development Goals and more data disaggregated by sex, age, wealth quintile, and urban or rural location. New data include access to clean cooking fuels and the number of industrial design applications registered globally. This edition reflects two major structural changes to World Development Indicators: • Poverty and shared prosperity, previously part of World view, is now a standalone section. Global highlights presented in World view encompass data from all six thematic sections. • Data on the Sustainable Development Goals are now presented in a new companion publication, Atlas of Sustainable Development Goals 2017, which analyzes and visualizes World Development Indicators data to explore progress toward the goals for 2030 and catalyzes discussion of measurement issues and data needs.

    This year's edition of the little green data book includes a focus story on oceans and its ecosystem services, as well as estimates of global marine fisheries wealth accounts, a first step in capturing the value of this important resource stock.

These and other related data are freely available online at data.worldbank.org as part of the World Bank's open data initiative. For more than a decade, the little green data book has served as a knowledge resource that aids policy makers in using environmental data more effectively to support priority-setting and improve development outcomes.

    The Little Data Book 2012
    (Washington, DC, 2012-04) World Bank
    The little data book 2012 is a pocket edition of world development indicators 2012. The 216 country tables in the little data book present the latest available data for World Bank member countries and other economies with populations of more than 30,000. For operational and analytical purposes the World Bank's main criterion for classifying economies is Gross National Income (GNI) per capita. Each economy in the little data book is classified as low income, middle income, or high income. Low-and middle-income economies are sometimes referred to as developing economies. The use of the term is convenient; it is not intended to imply that all economies in the group are experiencing similar development or that other economies have reached a preferred or final stage of development. Classification by income does not necessarily reflect development status. Low-income economies are those with a GNI per capita of $1,005 or less in 2010. Middle-income economies are those with a GNI per capita of more than $1,005 but less than $12,276. Lower-middle-income and upper-middle income economies are separated at a GNI per capita of $3,975. High-income economies are those with a GNI per capita of $12,276 or more.

    The Little Data Book on Climate Change 2011
    (World Bank, 2012-01) World Bank
    The little data book on climate change includes a diverse set of indicators selected from the global economic and scientific communities. These indicators recognize the intrinsic relationship between climate change and development and attempt to synthesize important aspects of current and projected climate conditions, exposure to climate impacts, resilience, greenhouse gas emissions, and the current state of efforts to take action. The little data book on climate change draws upon several online resources, including the open data website, the climate change knowledge portal, and the open data for resilience initiative. These resources from the World Bank and the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) provide free and open access to data and information relevant to climate risk, climate change, and development at the international, national and subnational levels. These resources contain many more indicators than are available in the limited space of this book and include interactive tools, visualizations on the use and interpretation of the data. In addition, there are other tools that will help users and programmers access World Bank data and develop applications.
