The World Bank Global Economic Monitor (GEM) includes data on economic development for developing and developed countries. Data includes equity markets, exchange rates, interest rates, bonds, selected indices. Includes monthly, quarterly and annual series from 1990.
Data are available for 196 economies and are designed to be cross comparable across different nations and geographical regions. Data are compiled to provide an understanding of what is going on in the global economy.
Many of the indicators are expressed in U.S. dollar terms, and their unit-descriptor metadata use the ISO currency symbol "USD." For series expressed in local currency, Data Buffet has used the generic symbol "NCU" ("national currency unit").
