I am looking for historical classification of countries by year as industrialized, Less Developed, and Emerging Market Countries and/or any other classification. I have looked on the World Bank website and other sources but did not manage to get that information, apart from a country classification by income that starts from 1987. Not properly what I am looking as I would like to go more back in tine. I have seen in research papers that some people do actually classify countries in my desired way and for years before 1987, but no data source is given.(For example in page 17 here http://web.pdx.edu/~ito/kaopen_Chinn-Ito_hi0523.pdf). Could anyone please kindly provide a source?
