U.S. National Statistics for the Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by the United Nations in 2015, are a historic commitment to take on the world’s most pressing and intractable problems, including poverty, hunger, education, and the climate. These 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) make up what has become known as the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and are supported by 169 targets and 232 indicators.
The United States has developed a reporting platform for U.S. National Statistics on the SDGs. The website is managed by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs; the U.S. Department of State, Office of International Organizations; the U.S. General Services Administration; and the U.S. Office of Science and Technology Policy. It is the National Reporting Platform (NRP) for the SDGs in the United States. The website provides the most recent U.S. statistics for the SDGs and is updated periodically.
The U.S. National Reporting Platform is open source and can be forked by other countries that are interested in making their own national reporting platforms utilizing code that the United States has developed. The United States and the United Kingdom are collaborating on creating NRPs that are open source and available for other users. The website also offers training materials for countries looking to learn how to develop their own reporting platform.
