Data-driven analysis through the SDG Pulse

SDG pulse


Reliable and timely data and statistics are key to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development while recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since 2019, the division has been providing latest statistics and data-driven analysis through the SDG Pulse, an annual online publication for member States and other key stakeholders to monitor the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

It’s among a range of our statistical online publications with approximately 250,000 users, 500,000 sessions, and eight million page views annually.

The SDG Pulse 2021 illustrated in numbers, progress and challenges faced by the countries in achieving the SDGs by 2030 and presented analyses for a range of indicators relevant to trade, investment, financing for development, debt, transport and technology.

Some examples included the business-to-consumer e-commerce index informing countries on their preparedness for e-commerce; and the index of remoteness helping countries to mitigate geographic distance and enhance connectivity.
