In September 2000, leaders from 189 nations agreed on a vision for the future: a world with less poverty, hunger and disease, greater survival prospects for mothers and their infants, better educated children, equal opportunities for women, and a healthier environment; a world in which developed and developing countries worked in partnership for the betterment of all. And so the Millennium Development Goals were born.
This website from the United Nations presents the official data, definitions, methodologies and sources for the 48 indicators to measure progress towards the Millennium Development Goals. The website include progress reports, and data which can be viewed by country or by indicator. Although the site is designed for a development, rather than an education audience, the data could be useful for post 16 development or economic studies research.
