SDG Indicators

Official list of SDG indicators


The following global indicator framework was developed by the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on SDG Indicators (IAEG-SDGs) and agreed to, as a practical starting point at the 47th session of the UN Statistical Commission held in March 2016. The report of the Commission, which included the global indicator framework, was then taken note of by ECOSOC at its 70th session in June 2016.

The global indicator list is contained in the Report of the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goal Indicators (E/CN.3/2016/2/Rev.1), Annex IV and provided below.

The list includes 230 indicators on which general agreement has been reached. Please note that the total number of indicators listed in the final indicator proposal is 241. However, since nine indicators repeat under two or three different targets (see below), the actual total number of individual indicators in the list is 230.

Indicators in the final list that repeat are the following:

  1. 7.a.1/13.a.1
  2. 8.4.1/12.2.1
  3. 8.4.2/12.2.2
  4. 10.3.1/16.b.1
  5. 10.6.1/16.8.1
  6. 15.7.1/15.c.1
  7. 15.a.1/15.b.1
  8. 1.5.1/11.5.1/13.1.2
  9. 1.5.3/11.b.2/13.1.1
