Washington, August, 30th, 2016 (Internews). Discover the “Media Map Project, a multi-faceted research collaboration between Internews and the World Bank Institute, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The goal is to better understand the interrelations between media development and outcomes in democracy and governance, economic growth, poverty reduction, human rights, gender equality, and health.

The Media Map Project invites the user to explore, interact with, and analyze data on media and development. From Freedom of the Press to GDP, the Media Map Project brings together comparable data that shed light on how measures of media, technology, and communication intersect with traditional development statistics.

The Media Map Project has made 25 data sets which collectively touch on every country in the world and up to 30 years’ worth of information available to the public for download and analysis. Visualizations on the site allow viewers to interact with and test the data in different ways.

Explore, map and chart the data on the Media Map Project web site.
