The IRI website provides a comprehensive full-text search. All pages and documents, including Scoreboards, Surveys, Working Papers and Policy Briefs, are indexed so they will be searched. In the search results page, you will be able to instantly refine the results using tags, categories or range dates that match the user's search criteria.
Advanced options are supported directly in the search input box:
- Searching in specific fields: This can be achieved in fields like title and description using the syntax: <field>:<term>
- Searching for a phrase: This requires surrounding the terms with double quotation marks.
- Wildcard Searches: Single and multiple character wildcard are supported within single terms not within phrase queries. To perform a single character wildcard search use the "?" symbol. To perform a multiple character wildcard search use the "*" symbol. Note that these symbols are not allowed as first character in the query.
