International Bank for Reconstruction and Development/The World Bank, 2017
At the global level, the World Bank has a strong reputation in development data and has been highly effective in data production.

This evaluation assesses how effectively the World Bank has supported development data production, sharing, and use, and suggests ways to improve its approach.
