United Nations Statistics Division: Millennium Development Goals (MDG) Indicators

The Millennium Development Goals (MDG) database presents the official data, definitions, methodologies and sources for more than 60 indicators to measure progress towards the eight MDGs. The data and analyses are the product of the work of the Inter-agency and Expert Group (IAEG) on MDG Indicators, coordinated by the United Nations Statistics Division. Data is provided from 1989 to present on the 189 UN member countries. The IFs system uses data on health, demographics, and sanitation.
