World Bank Group (2021)

Estimation of the World Bank Group for 2021.[1][2][3] The data is filtered according to the list of countries in South America. The values in the World Bank Group tables are rounded. All calculations are based on raw data, so due to the nuances of rounding, in some places illusory inconsistencies of indicators arose, with a size of 0.01 year.
