As many business and economics students out there have no doubt discovered many international organizations have databases with statistical information for starting businesses abroad. I wanted to point out another free source from the World Bank, Enterprise Surveys.
This is a collection of information gathered from surveying over 66,000 firms in 98 countries on the business environment. It has data from how much time it takes to deal with taxes to corruption.
They even have a feature that lets you customize the data, by indicators, countries/groups, stratification (categorizing the data by firm size, sector, ownership, exporter), and statistics (average, count, standard deviation, minimum, maximum).
