GNI per capita (formerly GNP per capita) is the gross national income, converted to U.S. dollars using the World Bank Atlas method, divided by the midyear population. GNI is the sum of value added by all resident producers plus any product taxes (less subsidies) not included in the valuation of output plus net receipts of primary income (compensation of employees and property income) from abroad. GNI, calculated in national currency, is usually converted to U.S. dollars at official exchange rates for comparisons across economies, although an alternative rate is used when the official exchange rate is judged to diverge by an exceptionally large margin from the rate actually applied in international transactions. To smooth fluctuations in prices and exchange rates, a special Atlas method of conversion is used by the World Bank. This applies a conversion factor that averages the exchange rate for a given year and the two preceding years, adjusted for differences in rates of inflation between the country, and through 2000, the G-5 countries (France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States). From 2001, these countries include the Euro area, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

The Microdata Library includes datasets that have been produced by the World Bank, such as impact evaluation of the Bank’s operations or research on development issues. It also includes datasets from other international organizations, statistical agencies and other agencies in low and middle-income countries. Our aim is to provide access to as much information as possible, free of charge, to all users. In some situations, however, especially where the datasets have been provided to the World Bank by other agencies, the ownership of the data remains with that agency and there may be some limitations on how data can be accessed and used.

Average Monthly Temperature
Average Monthly Temperature are monthly averages for the 1901-2009 time period. These data are proxies based on gridded climatologies from the Climate Research Unit. Modeling has been used to extrapolate estimates where instrumental (station) data were unavailable or unreliable, especially in the early 1900’s.
