SDG Indicators

Report of the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Indicators presents an ambitious  set of targets and indicators.  There are 17 goals, 169 targets and 229 Indicators. (Table 1)

This report presents a proposal of global indicators for the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda. The proposal includes indicators for all Goals and targets, with some indicators already fully defined and a few requiring refinements following further consultation.

A core element of the global indicator framework is the disaggregation of data and the coverage of particular groups of the population in order to fulfill the main principle of the 2030 Agenda of leaving no one behind

The expert group is of the opinion, ‘Sustainable Development Goal indicators should be disaggregated, where relevant, by income, sex, age, race, ethnicity, migratory status, disability and geographic location, or other characteristics, in accordance with the Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics’.
