Also known as the Global Goals, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) present a universal plan of action to build on the progress achieved through the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by addressing social, economic, and environmental aspects of sustainable development. Like the MDGs, the SDGs set forth quantifiable targets to be achieved by 2030 (with a 2015 baseline) for ending poverty, protecting the planet, and ensuring that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The latest global indicator framework of the SDGs consists of 17 goals, 169 targets, and 232 indicators. The current set of indicators is grouped into three tiers. Indicators classified in Tier 1 have a clear, established methodology and data are regularly collected by many countries. Tier 2 indicators, although they have an established methodology, are not regularly collected by many countries. Tier 3 indicators do not have an established estimation methodology and standards. This database compiles country-level data from official country and international sources, as well as the Global Database maintained by the United Nations Statistics Division.
