The Global Findex Database 2021: Financial Inclusion, Digital Payments, and Resilience in the Age of COVID-19

The fourth edition of the Global Findex report aims to provide insight into how people accessed and used financial services during the COVID-19 contingency period, when mobility restrictions and health policies drove increased demand for digital services of all kinds. The data used in this report were compiled from nationally representative surveys of some 130,000 adults in more than 120 economies. This edition includes new series measuring financial health and resilience and contains more granular data on digital payments adoption, including merchant and government payments.
The Global Findex is an indispensable resource for financial service practitioners, policymakers, researchers, and development professionals.
