    The Little Green Data Book 2005 is a pocket edition of the World Development Indicators (WDI) 2005. It is intended as a quick reference tool for users of the WDI 2005 book and CD-ROM and WDi Online, our electronic subscription database. Together, they cover more than 600 indicators and span of 40 years. The 207 country pages in the Little Data Book presents the latest available data of World Bank member countries and other economies with populations of more than 30,000. The 14 summary pages cover regional and income group aggregates. The data in this book are for 1990, 2001, and 2003, or the most recent year for which data are available, unless otherwise noted in the glossary. 1) Growth rates are proportional changes from the previous year, unless otherwise noted; 2) Regional aggregates include data for low- and middle-income economies only; 3) Figures in italics indicate data for years, or periods other than those specified. Like the World Development Indicators 2005, this edition of The Little Data Book uses terminology in line with the 1993 System of National Accounts (SNA). In particular, gross national product (GNP) is replaced by gross national income (GNI). Since 2003, the selection of indicators in these pages has been updated to include some of those being used to monitor progress toward the Millennium Development Goals.
