ASPIRE is the World Bank's premier compilation of Social Protection and Labor (SPL) indicators gathered from officially-recognized international household surveys in order to analyze the distributional and poverty impact of Social Protection and Labor programs. ASPIRE is an ongoing project that aims to improve SPL data quality, comparability and availability to better inform SPL policies and programs.
This portal serves both World Bank staff and external practitioners as a one-stop-shop for SPL indicators. ASPIRE is directly linked to the World Bank Databank in order to provide the user with tools to search the database and to generate customized tables and charts. In addition the portal includes related survey information from the World Bank Microdata Library.
