1000 days to the MDGs: Data Dashboards to Monitor the last Stretch

According to an article published on the World Bank Data blog, data on Millennium Development Goals (MDG) indicator trends for developing countries and for different groups of countries are curated in the World Development Indicator (WDI) database.  Each year the World Bank uses these data in the Global Monitoring Report (GMR) to track progress on the MDGs.
