Thanks to Kit Baum and updated and renamed version of the Stata module
WBDATA is now available.

WBOPENDATA draws from the main World Bank collections of development
indicators, compiled from officially-recognized international sources,
and made available through the World Bank Open Data Initiative, and
presents the most current and accurate global development data
available, and includes national, regional and global estimates. Users
can chose from one of three of the languages supported by the
database, namely, English, Spanish, or French. Three possible
downloads options are currently supported: country - all indicators
for all years for a single country. topic - all indicators within a
specific topic, for all years and all countries. indicator - all years
for all countries for a single indicator. Users can also choose to
have the data displayed in either the wide or long format (wide is the
default option).

User's can download WBOPENDATA directly from within Stata by typing

ssc install wbopendata

WBOPENDATA requires an internet connection.
