SDG Indicators

Revised list of global Sustainable Development Goal indicators


The following global indicator framework was developed by the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on SDG Indicators (IAEG-SDGs) and agreed upon, including refinements on several indicators, at the 48th session of the United Nations Statistical Commision held in March 2017.

The global indicator list is contained in the Report of the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goal Indicators (E/CN.3/2017/2), Annex III and provided below.

The list includes 232 indicators on which general agreement has been reached. Please note that the total number of indicators listed in the revised global list of SDG indicators is 244. However, since nine indicators repeat under two or three different targets (see below), the actual total number of individual indicators in the list is 232.

Indicators in the final list that repeat are the following:

  1. 8.4.1/12.2.1
  2. 8.4.2/12.2.2
  3. 10.3.1/16.b.1
  4. 10.6.1/16.8.1
  5. 15.7.1/15.c.1
  6. 15.a.1/15.b.1
  7. 1.5.1/11.5.1/13.1.1
  8. 1.5.3/11.b.1/13.1.2
  9. 1.5.4/11.b.2/13.1.3
