About this book

This edition contains a special section on labour policy and market-based growth strategies as means of raising the living standard of workers. As usual, other essential social, economic and political data are included.

"An evergreen source of thematic material and the best single statistical compendium on low-income countries."
– Bruce Herrick, Washington and Lee University

"A useful statment of the international organization's view on policy in a particular area. It also provides a good synthesis of very current research [...] the World Development Report is likely to enhance interest in labour issues linked to globalization, and to inform policy."
Canadian Journal of Development Studies

Praise for the 1994 edition:
"Excellent source of data, fine graphs, and each annual issue provides a superb analysis of one factor important for development."
– Sanford D. Gordon, University of Florida

"I assign the Report as reading to my undergraduate economic development class every year."
– Alain de Janvry, University of California-Berkeley
