How can we improve the usability of the data website (data.worldbank.org) or Databank (databank.worldbank.org)?

Sort data catalog by development or operations

The World Bank often describes its open data program as "data about what we know" and "data about what we do." In other words, development/research data and operations data. I think it would be helpful if the data catalog was organized this way, so that users interested in just one kind of data can filter out the other kind. Can there be two "Refine By" categories on the left side for "Data about what we know" and "Data about what we do?"

    Thank you for your message. The “Refine By” filter option available on the Data Catalog (http://datacatalog.worldbank.org/) page allows users to select the Topic “World Bank Group Projects & Finances”. This option selects the databases which provide information about the World Bank operations and finances.
