The World Bank Atlas 2003 provides easy-to-read, colorful world maps, tables, and graphs highlighting key social, economic, and environmental data for 208 countries. Drawing on data from World Development Indicators, the World Bank's respected annual compilation of development data, the Atlas brings to life cross-country comparisons of social indicators like life expectancy, infant mortality, safe water, population below the poverty line, girls in school, energy efficiency, and greenhouse gas emissions, as well as basic economic indicators like income growth, income per person, private capital and aid flows. Sample maps in this year's expanded edition include:

  • The World's Growing Population
  • Rich and Poor
  • Demands on the world's environment are increasing
  • Global Killers: HIV/AIDS and other diseases
  • Gender and development
  • Education: Opening Doors
  • Changing patterns of growth
  • Decreasing barriers to trade

Ideal for use in the classroom or as a reference, The World Bank Atlas is a vivid illustration of the key development challenges in the world today.
