Regional Data for all indicators

I was trying to find regional data for some indicators but could only find information by nation. Regional data was only available for featured indicators. It would be helpful if Regional Data was available for all indicators together with national data

    Unfortunately, we cannot provide regional aggregate data for indicators where geographic coverage across countries is not sufficient. It could be misleading to our users to state a regional aggregate based on data coming only from a few countries. We hope to achieve this in the future as we get better data coverage. Please do let us know if you are interested in a particular indicator. Many thanks for the feedback!
