Logistics Performance Index
The Logistics Performance Index is an interactive benchmarking tool created to help countries identify the challenges and opportunities they face in their performance on trade logistics and what they can do to improve their performance – the LPI allow for comparisons across 150 countries.
World Bank Railways Database and Private Concessions Database
The Railways Database (RDB) was first developed by the World Bank in the late 1980s. It provides a set of indicators for the railways sub-sector of transport covering size, scale and various measures of productivity over a time frame long enough to permit adequate cross-sectional and time series performance evaluations.
The Private Concessions Database (PCD) developed in late 1990’s contains information on railway concessions.
Private Participation in Infrastructure Database
The Private Participation in Infrastructure (PPI) Project Database has data on more than 4,300 infrastructure projects in 137 low- and middle-income countries. The database is the leading source of PPI trends in the developing world, covering projects in the energy, telecommunications, transport, and water and sewerage sectors.
Rural Access Index (RAI)
The Rural Access Index (RAI) is key transport headline indicator. It has been established to focus on the critical role of access and mobility in the reduction of poverty in developing countries. The RAI estimates the proportion of the rural population who have adequate access to the transport system.
World Development Indicators 2010 (WDI)
The WDI 2010 database is available through data.worldbank.org provides access to key development indicators in four languages: English, Spanish, French and Arabic. These indicators are carefully drawn from numerous data sources and statistical partners. The full set of the Bank’s indicators on development are also available in the data catalog using an interactive query tool with over 2,000 time series indicators, for over 200 economies, and in many cases for over 50 years.
The following transport-related indicators are available:
Air transport, freight (million ton-km);
Air transport, passengers carried;
Air transport, registered carrier departures worldwide;
Burden of customs procedure, WEF (1=extremely inefficient to 7=extremely efficient);
Container port traffic (TEU: 20 foot equivalent units);
