THE LITTLE DATA BOOK ON FINANCIAL DEVELOPMENT 2014 [25 September 2013]
[full-text, 233 pages]
The little data book is a pocket edition of the global financial development database published as part of the work on the Global Financial Development Report 2014 : financial inclusion. The book has put more emphasis on access indicators and, in particular, includes additional variables capturing different aspects of access to financial institutions. The data in this book are for 2001, 2006, and 2011. The data highlights the multidimensional nature of financial systems. A basic comparison of data confirms that while financial systems in developing economies tend to be less deep, provide less access, and is somewhat less efficient, their stability has been comparable to financial systems in developed countries in recent years.
