The 2017 report and statistical annex present data on progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals for the world as a whole and for various groups. The country groupings are based on the geographic regions defined under the Standard Country or Area Codes for Statistical Use (known as M49) of the United Nations Statistics Division. The geographic regions are shown on the map above. For the purpose of presentation, some of the M49 regions have been combined.

The use of geographic regions as the basis for country groupings is a major change from the 2016 Sustainable Development Goals Report and the progress reports on the Millennium Development Goals. Previously, data were presented for countries in "developed" regions and countries in "developing" regions, which were further broken down into geographic subregions. Although there is no established convention for the designation of "developed" and "developing" countries or areas in the United Nations system, data for some indicators in the report and annex are still being presented for developed and developing regions for the purpose of statistical analysis only, and are based on the practice employed by the international agencies that provided the data.

The forthcoming 2017 database will present aggregates, to the extent available, according to both the geographic regions as defined by M49 and for countries in "developed" regions and countries in "developing" regions, which is further broken down into geographic subregions.

In addition, the tables in the statistical annex and the database present, to the extent possible, data for least developed countries, landlocked developing countries and small island developing States, which are country groups requiring special attention.

The designations employed and the presentation of the material in this publication do not imply the expression of any opinion whatsoever on the part of the Secretariat of the United Nations concerning the legal status of any country, territory, city or area or of its authorities, or concerning the delimitation of its frontiers or boundaries.
