Over the past couple months, we have been gathering the latest statistics from various UN Partners on the situation of youth globally across a wide range of topics. In the interest of informing the conversation around the situation of youth, we have published them here on our website and will sharing out #YouthStats on social media around a different theme each week. 

The information provided was made available with the support of our partners: UNDESA, UNAIDS, UNAOC, UNCDF, UNDP, UNEP, UNESCO, UNFCCC, UNFPA, UNICEF, UNIDO, UN-HABITAT, UNHCR, UN Millennium Campaign, OCHA, UNODC, UN WOMEN, UNWTO, FAO, ILO, IOM, ITU, WFP, WHO, Office of the SRSG on Violence Against Children, and the UN Peace Building Support Office.

The #YouthStats initiative will begin on May 9 and will run until  International Youth Day on August 12th.
