Global Economy and Development

Interactive Features

The Global Economy and Development Program at Brookings offers three interactive features related to the program’s focus on the global economy, international development and global poverty:

  Tracking Indexes for Global Economic Recovery (TIGER), first launched by Brookings and the Financial Times in May 2010, is an interactive map that tracks the economic recovery in advanced and emerging markets, based on three types of variables, including real economic activity, financial indicators, and confidence indicators. The project is based on research and analysis by Brookings Senior Fellow Eswar Prasad and Research Analyst Karim Foda, and is updated regularly.
  The Development, Aid and Governance Indicators (DAGI) explore the relationship between measures related to international development, aid and governance. It features six indicators covering foreign aid, governance, global poverty and middle class populations around the world. This interactive feature, based on research by Brookings experts from the Development Assistance and Governance Initiative, aims to facilitate evidence-based policy analysis and foster discussions about trends in foreign assistance, governance and development.
  The Africa Learning Barometer analyzes the state of education and learning in 28 sub-Saharan African countries through four indicators: school enrollment, school completion, quality of education and education inequality. The barometer, which is a collaboration between the Center for Universal Education and This is Africa, is the first region-wide assessment and online interactive tool that examines Africa’s education deficit and growing learning crisis.
 arab learning barometer The Arab Learning Barometer is an interactive tool developed by the Center for Universal Education that provides a snapshot of the state of education and learning in the Middle East and North Africa. The barometer measures the quality of education and learning by examining four areas: getting into school, staying in school, whether students are learning basic skills in school, and the link between education and youth employment.
