The Penn World Table, or short PWT, is a database of several macroeconomic data, starting 1950 and covering 167 countries. It is an important data source for development economists and researchers of the global economy more generally.
This program downloads the data from the internet and places the information into a Matlab struct variable. This makes these important data available to researchers for analysis in Matlab.

The program is likely to be useful for academic economists only. Please comment if you find it useful.
