Database on finance, growth and inequality
It is a database of 182 countries for the period 1950 to 2009. This is the most comprehensive database on finance, inequality and growth, and extends all existing database. Our database combines the information on income and inequality contained in the UNU-WIDER data set and the Human Development Report published by UNDP; the World Bank database on financial development, and databases on legal, institutional and political variables compiled by different researchers in their respective fields of work. This database has the potential of facilitating research not only in finance, inequality and growth, but in many other subjects like gender equality, poverty, political systems, and government policy.
