Data Set The World Bank

Financial Inclusion Around the World

The World Bank has published a database called the “2014 Global Findex” that catalogs the world’s progress towards financial inclusion. The Global Findex pulls information from nearly 150,000 interviews with residents of 172 countries and contains 800 indicators of financial inclusion, such as how many adults have bank accounts, financial differences between genders, and how adults manage their money and financial risks. Users can compare information from the 2011 Global Findex to see how these factors have changed over time. The data can be downloaded by country, region, aggregated groups of countries such as high income nations, inclusion indicator, and time period.
