World Competitiveness Online

World Competitiveness Online is a unique and comprehensive database on the competitiveness of nations. It includes a 20-year time series from the IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook, the leading annual report published by IMD since 1989.

As of 2015 we have a completely revamped software based on the latest  technology, which provides a powerful and unique user experience.

The main functionalities include:

  • Extensive country profiles, presented in a very visual and user-friendly way
  • Any combination of data for 61 countries, a 20-year time series and more than 300 criteria
  • Downloads (Excel and PDF)
  • Excellent search and data filters
  • Data can easily be re-used in other software for analysis

Statistics are updated as soon as new information becomes available. This is ideal if you wish to work with the data.

A free version with limited data access is available here.

Free trial periods to the full version are granted to university libraries, governments and non-profit organizations.
