The WORLD Policy Analysis Center provides access to global research, data, and maps for sharing ideas and resources on social policies from around the world.

Priorities as a partner of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data

Our vision is a world with increased transparency and accountability around government commitments to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and a greater understanding of what works to achieve progress at scale. To that end, WORLD's multidisciplinary research team has created a unique repository of over 1,500 health, social, economic, and environmental policy and program indicators for all 193 UN countries. WORLD is committed to making its data publicly accessible to inform the research and policy efforts of a wide range of stakeholders, including policymakers seeking information on what steps are feasible and effective, civil society organizations committed to working for change and ensuring their governments are as effective as possible, and to researchers analyzing the link between policies and outcomes.
