Types of discrepancy in Millennium Development Goal indicator values and measures for statistical reconciliation: Overall framework and implementation in selected thematic areas and indicators
MetadataShow full item record
This document proposes a conceptual and methodological framework for analysing discrepancies between indicator values for monitoring Millennium Development Goals (MDG) used globally and those used by Latin American and Caribbean countries in their national MDG reports. It includes an implementation exercise on a small set of indicators for specific MDG targets (employment, education, child mortality, maternal mortality and water and sanitation). Both the proposed methodology and the analysis made after comparing these values were presented for discussion at the fifth annual seminar on advances and challenges in statistical reconciliation for monitoring progress towards the Millennium Development Goals in Latin America, held in Buenos Aires (Argentina) on 5-6 November 2009, and at the sixth annual seminar on Millennium Development Goal indicators in Latin America and the Caribbean, in Mexico City, on 1-2 December 2011.
I. Background .-- II. Overall frame of reference for understanding Millennium Development Goal statistical reconciliation in the region .-- III. General measures for statistical reconciliation .-- IV. Analysis of discrepancies relating to Millennium Development Goal target 1.B: Achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all, including women and young people .-- V. Analysis of discrepancies relating to Millennium Development Goal target 2.A: Ensure that, by 2015, children everywhere, boys and girls alike, will be able to complete a full course of primary schooling .-- VI. Analysis of discrepancies relating to Millennium Development Goal target 4.A: Reduce by two thirds, between 1990 and 2015, the under-five mortality rate .-- VII. Analysis of discrepancies relating to Millennium Development Goal target 5.A: Reduce by three quarters, between 1990 and 2015, the maternal mortality ratio .-- VIII. Analysis of discrepancies relating to Millennium Development Goal target 7.C: Halve, by 2015, the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation .-- IX. Conclusions.
