Statistical Yearbook for Asia and the Pacific 2017

Measuring SDG Progress in Asia and the Pacific - Is there Enough Data?

The Statistical Yearbook for Asia and the Pacific 2017 is structured as a suite of products comprising at its core a review of SDG data availability in the Asia-Pacific region. Using SDG data from custodian agencies, the report proposes a method to estimate the feasibility of calculating trend over time, or current status, for each indicator for the region, subregions and for selected country groupings. The analysis of current data leads to a series of key messages discussed in the report. Other components of the Statistical Yearbook 2017 are an updated online database with different module to query, compare and visualize data; as well as a set of SDG datasheets for the 58 regional ESCAP member states. The ready-to-print SDG datasheets present latest available data for each country, side-by-side with the Asia-pacific aggregates as comparator.
