MDGs are eight international development goals that all 193 United Nations member states and at least 23 international organizations agreed to achieve by the year 2015. They include eradicating extreme poverty, reducing child mortality rates, fighting disease epidemics such as AIDS, and developing a global partnership for development.
Mortality and burden of diseases, child nutrition, child health, maternal and reproductive health, immunization, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, neglected diseases, water and sanitation, non communicable diseases and risk factors, epidemic-prone diseases, health systems, environmental health, violence and injuries, and equity among other indicators. Date availability varies by indicator. Some indicators are WHO estimates which will differ from national estimates.
The Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) program of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) "has collected, analyzed, and disseminated accurate and representative data on population, health, HIV, and nutrition through more than 260 surveys in over 90 countries."
An easy to use resource based largely on WHO sources. This page presents statistics under the heading of Kaiser's U.S. Global Health Policy, which situates the U.S. in comparison with the rest of the world.
Databases include LABORSTA, which "covers official core labour statistics and estimates for over 200 countries since 1969. Also provides methodological descriptions of main national statistical sources." Other databases cover labor market indicators, child labor data, and information on labor law.
The United Nations' official MDG Indicators website presents the official data, definitions, methodologies and sources for more than 60 indicators to measure progress towards the Millennium Development Goals.
