The International Debt Report (IDR), formerly International Debt Statistics (IDS), is a longstanding annual publication of the World Bank featuring external debt statistics and analysis for the 121 low- and middle-income countries that report to the World Bank Debt Reporting System (DRS).
Now in its forty-nineth year, IDR supports policymakers and analysts by monitoring aggregate and country-specific trends in external debt in low- and middle-income countries. It provides a comprehensive picture of external borrowing and sources of lending by type of borrower and creditor. The IDR includes recent findings from academic research on debt transparency and draws on the IDS database to provide empirical evidence of the evolution of official and private creditors’ lending volumes and terms over the past decade.
In addition, the IDS-DSSI database includes the actual debt service deferred in 2021 by each bilateral creditor and the projected monthly debt-service payments owed to all bilateral creditors for year 2022. Learn more.
Atlas of Sustainable Development Goals 2020: a new visual guide to data and development
The Atlas of Sustainable Development Goals is built around World Development Indicators — the World Bank’s compilation of statistics from over 200 economies about global development and the quality of people’s lives. For each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, selected indicators have been identified and visualized to analyze trends and challenges, and to stimulate discussion on measurement issues. You can browse the Atlas online here and all the underlying data is available in the World Development Indicators database.
