MDG Reporting in the Unicef Eastern Caribbean Sub-region
Transcript of MDG Reporting in the Unicef Eastern Caribbean Sub-region
What are they?
Reporting in the Eastern Caribbean
Proportion of indicators reported by territory:
Indicators must be measured at different intervals in order to track progress- this was not always the case in the Eastern Caribbean sub-region. The assessment of progress towards the MDGs can only be conducted on an average of 32% of the indicators.
These are alternative indicators used when the official indicator is not available. These indicators may not be as easily comparable at the international level.
What does this mean for possible country level comparisons?
Reporting in the sub-region is low. The proportion of indicators reported on ranged from 23% in Montserrat and the British Virgin Islands to 51% in Trinidad & Tobago
Proportion of indicators reported vs. indicators with data for trend assessment
5 proxy indicators were used in the Eastern C'bean region and in most cases garnered significantly more responses than the official MDG indicator
Comparison of MDG Indicators and their Proxies
In 4 of the 5 cases above the use of proxy indicators allows for easier comparison at the regional level
