The Global Financial Inclusion Database provides 506 country-level indicators of financial inclusion summarized for all adults and disaggregated by key demographic characteristics—gender, age, education, income, and rural or urban residence. Covering 148 economies, the indicators of financial inclusion measure how people save, borrow, make payments and manage risk.
