The OECD is an international economic organization of 34 countries, which regularly publishes reports analyzing and comparing economic policies of its member nations.
The organization was founded in 1961 with the aim to stimulate economic growth and world trade as a forum "committed to democracy and the market economy." The OECD's headquarters are at the Château de la Muette in Paris, France; its current secretary-general is José Ángel Gurría, formerly a Mexican cabinet minister.

India's rapid economic growth has lifted 140 million people out of poverty in the past decade but many of India's people still lack access to elecricity and toilets, the OECD said Tuesday. The Paris-based group also said in its 142-page country survey that poverty in India is still too high, and added that health care amounted to barely one percent of gross domestic product.
