The World Bank World Development Indicators are widely recognised as the most authoritative and comprehensive source of data on international development. The data cover all countries for the period 1960-present.
ESDS International is making the WDI dataset available as Linked Data via the ESDS International website.
The screen shot below shows how series and code list RDF can be selected and downloaded.
The data for each series can also be downloaded via URI. The URI for each series can be determined by selecting the series, as above, which will download the series RDF file, the URI for the series is referenced inside this file.
This work forms part of the MimasLD project, which is funded under the jiscEXPO program and aims to expose Mimas hosted content as Linked Data.
Detailed information about how we converted the dataset to Linked Data is in this blog post.
