What are the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicators?
Last Updated: Apr 21, 2017
In paragraph 75 of Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (A/RES/70/1), the Secretary-General outlines the levels at which the Sustainable Development Goals will be measured.
The list of SDG indicators agreed upon by the UN Statistical Commission in March 2016 will be subject to refinements and improvements as methods and data availability improve. These statistics are maintained in the SDG Indicators Global Database.
The data from the SDG Indicators Global Database is used to compile the Secretary-General's annual report on "Progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals".
