WORLDSTAT: Stata module to produce a visualisation of the state of world development
worldstat is a module which allows for the current state of world development to be visualised in a computationally simple way. worldstat presents both the geographic and temporal variation in a wide range of macroeconomic and microeconomic statistics retrieved automatically from the World Bank Data Bank. While worldstat includes a number of "in-built" statistics such as GDP, maternal mortality and years of schooling, it is extremely flexible, and can, (thanks to the World Bank's module wbopendata), easily incorporate any of the 5,000+ indicators collated by the World Bank.
