Description

Problems with aggregate regional data

Details

The World Bank is missing GDP data for a number of nations, such as Syria and Taiwan. Because of this and the incommensurability between the regions used for aggregate statistics in the World Bank data and the BP data, aggregate regional data (e.g., for the Middle East and Africa) should be treated with caution. This problem does not hold for individual nations, where missing data appears as NA values.
