The Worldwide Governance Indicators
The Worldwide Governance Indicators (WGI) project reports aggregate and individual governance indicators for over 200 countries for 1996-2015 on six indicators: voice and accountability, political stability and absence of violence, government effectiveness, regulatory quality, rule of law, and control of corruption. Indicators are populated from 30 data sources. The information below was compiled from responses to AidData’s 2016 GDA Snap Poll, which asked public, private and civil society leaders to answer 11 questions about whether, when, and why they use governance data in their work. A total of 107 participants to the snap poll indicated familiarity with the WGI.
