This site brings together information and resources dealing with statistics on Africa, both from within the World Bank and from many other sources identified by World Bank staff.

On the left-hand menu, you will find three sections: Data, Methods and Tools, and Resources.

Information on statistical research and development work supported by the World Bank in Sub-Saharan Africa can be found under Tools and Methods.

Under Resources, you will find key sources of statistics in African organizations, including academic and research institutes, national statistics offices, and regional institutions as well as other international and donor partner organizations.

Inclusion of information on this site does not imply specific endorsement by the World Bank. Nor does the absence of information imply any deliberate exclusion. We are aware that information may be incomplete, and we are continually building our information pool and adding to our resources.
