  1. National average income sepearately for urban and rural population

    For several international analysis, e.g. municipal waste generation, it would be very helpful to have GDP/cap for total population (average national income per capita) split into urban and rural population.

    For several analysis also a distribution over income classes for urban and rural population would be very beneficial.
    Perhaps also separately for largest cities, e.g. > 300k or > 1 mln.
    But most important would be a split into rural-urban (perhaps also large urban), in particular for developing countries.

      • Indicators such as gross output for different sized businesses in a given country

        Gross output, for example, over a series of years for countries but broken down into the size of the company for example: small enterprises, medium enterprises and large enterprises. This way an examination of capital accumlation could take place. There is already data on the gross output overall but I think it should be broken down into the type/size of the businesses.

        • Transportation in Landlocked Countries

          We received this feedback at the Data Help Desk from a World Bank Data user. We're posting it here for discussion:

          I am a citizen of Bolivia, a landlocked country with high transport costs
          and a lot of limitations that hinder us to trade with other countries.

          There are other countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and South America in the
          same situation. We all have similar difficulties and can learn of our
          mutual experiences.

          The reason of this request is to encourage you to include in all INDICATORS
          of the World Bank a category of LANDLOCKED COUNTRIES. I find, that…
