This handbook is targeted towards national statisticians to enable them to monitor progress made in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals based on data produced by national statistical systems.
It addresses the growing need for information targeted towards national statisticians to collect, calculate, and monitor the SDGs using data produced by the national statistical systems. We hope this will be a comprehensive yet straightforward reference that focuses on key aspects–such as concepts, definition, sources, calculations–that are essential to measuring indicators. It also provides additional links and references to more detailed information, so that national statisticians are able to delve into detailed references when needed.
