I stumbled across one of their sites
The Global Atlas of Inequality
The mission of the UC Atlas of Inequality is to provide online teaching resources and tools to enable student exploration of global change. Aspects of
21st Century global integration and inequality present great challenges to university teaching. The UC Atlas of Global Inequality attempts to address
these challenges using the Internet, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology and new graphical capabilities of digital media to enhance
learning in Geography, Sociology, Economics, Health, Technology and Environmental Studies. The Atlas integrates data, maps, and graphs to create an
interactive website for accessing and analyzing information addressing global change and inequality.
Put in a country or countries, what you want to look at and click.

The main source of data for Atlas maps and the Atlas database is the World Bank's World Development Indicators. Take that as you will.
