Statement of World Bank Group on Discontinuing Doing Business Report Read our statement

Doing Business studies the time, cost and outcome of insolvency proceedings involving domestic legal entities. These variables are used to calculate the recovery rate, which is recorded as cents on the dollar recovered by secured creditors through reorganization, liquidation or debt enforcement (foreclosure or receivership) proceedings. To determine the present value of the amount recovered by creditors, Doing Business uses the lending rates from the International Monetary Fund, supplemented with data from central banks and the Economist Intelligence Unit.  The most recent round of data collection for the project was completed in May 2020. See the methodology for more information. Video presentation of the methodology is also available.
