Measuring Sustainable Development Goals Indicators Through Population and Housing Censuses and Civil Registration and Vital Statistics Data
Only available in Arabic.
The present report focuses on sustainable development goals’ indicators that can be captured in whole or in part using two existing data collection instruments: the Population and Housing Census (PHC) and the Civil Registration and Vital Statistics System (CRVS). It also discusses the possibilities for disaggregation of the indicators by the various population groups, urban/rural areas of residence, and by age, sex, education strata, migration and disability status and stresses the value of these sources in monitoring the SDGs at subnational level. The report also points out some limitations of the use of PHC and CRVS data for estimating the SDG indicators.
