We endeavor to maintain the most recent data in synchronization with the original sources. Data updates across all the data sources are planned twice a year - during Spring and Fall, to coincide with the World Bank Annual Meetings. Some of the datasets will be updated more frequently. 

The last updated information can be accessed for indicators and datasets in their respective pages. The data present in the site is the most recent data as of the ‘Last Updated’ date. Even if the data has not been updated in the source, ‘Last Updated’ date indicates that Prosperity Data360 scanned the source for updates on that date. If you would like to report an indicator or data source that is not up to date, please send an email to prosperitydata360@worldbank.org.

The Prosperity Data360 offers an API for all available data. Please check the API page for more information.

As we consolidate data from multiple sources with varying country names and codes, we harmonize the country names and ISO3 codes based on the official World Bank list. Economies absent in the list and grouped geographies are removed from the data. Aggregate values for regions, income groups, and the world are calculated with the same approach. The World Bank classification of regions and income groups can be found here.

Some indicators (e.g., GDP, population, etc.) are reported by multiple sources, and users can pick the indicator from the source they prefer. The data source for each indicator is credited in the indicator metadata section.

The data on the Prosperity Data360 is available from a variety of sources (see "Where does the data come from?"). While all the data displayed on this website is publicly available, different sources have different guidelines for re-using their data. Please consult the source organization for the data you wish to use (under the "See source data and resources" button under the indicator name) or see our Terms of Use page for more information.

A note to the data sources: we endeavor to abide by the terms of use of all datasets and include only those that are available for redistribution. Links to the original source are made available in the detail page for each indicator and dataset. In case you prefer your dataset to be omitted from the Prosperity Data360 platform, please write to us at prosperitydata360@worldbank.org.
