The importance of data and statistic analysis to the achievement of the SDGs

This paper was written, by a student, as a brief discussion of one of the topics presented in the Global Impact Mindset: UN SDG Module of NOVA SBE. The importance of Data for the achievement of the SDGs is a consensual topic over demographic and organs. Decision-makers require data and statistics that are precise, timely, suitably disaggregated, pertinent, available, and simple to use to properly implement and track progress on the SDGs. Over time, both the quantity and quality of data have gradually increased. Data literacy must be improved at all levels of decision-making, and statistical competence still needs to be strengthened. The data producers and users from various data systems will need to work together on this. In order to solve the complex issues surrounding sustainable development, it will also be necessary to create new methods for producing and using data and statistics.
