Summary: World Development Indicators 2013, the World Bank's premier compilation of relevant, high quality, and internationally comparable statistics about global development. A world development indicator is the result of a collaborative effort of many partners: the United Nations family, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the organization for economic co-operation and development, the statistical offices of more than 200 economies, and countless others. The indicators used to monitor the millennium development goals have traced the path of the HIV epidemic, the resurgence and retreat of tuberculosis, and the step-by-step efforts to roll back malaria. More people now have access to reliable water supplies and basic sanitation facilities. But forests continue to disappear and with them the habitat for many species of plants and animals, and greenhouse gases continue to accumulate in the atmosphere.
