Objectifs du Millénaire pour le développement (OMD) Haut de page Les huit objectifs du Millénaire pour le développement (OMD) forment un plan approuvé par tous les pays du monde et par toutes les grandes institutions mondiales de développement.

Prosperity Index National success is about more than just wealth. And yet, traditionally we have used narrow measures of wealth (such as GDP) as our benchmark to determine the success of nations. The Prosperity Index goes beyond GDP to measure countries’ success against a broad set of metrics covering areas such as health, education, opportunity, social capital, personal freedom, and more. The Prosperity Index is the only global index that measures national prosperity based on both wealth and wellbeing (objective and subjective data). The Index seeks to redefine the concept of national prosperity to include, as a matter of fundamental importance, factors such as democratic governance, entrepreneurial opportunity, and social cohesion. It aims to spark debate and to encourage policy-makers, scholars, the media, and the interested public to take an holistic view of prosperity and to better understand how it is created.

WHO Eastern Mediterranean health observatory Civil registration and vital statistics systems in the Region Between November 2012 and January 2013, countries of the Eastern Mediterranean Region conducted a civil registration and vital statistics system rapid assessment. The results show that around 40% of countries have either inadequate or weak systems, and only a quarter have a satisfactory system. The area that scored the lowest average across the Region was coder qualification (used to code death certificates to ensure reliability of data), and training and quality of coding, followed by practices affecting the quality of cause of death data, then International Classification of Diseases (ICD 10)-compliant practices and certification within and outside hospitals. Among countries with “satisfactory” civil registration and vital statistics systems, the quality of cause of death data and qualification and training of coders and quality of coding are the main concerns.

Commission on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress - Home page CATO Economic Freedom of the World Global economic freedom increased slightly in this year’s report, but remains below its peak level of 6.92 in 2007. The average score increased to 6.86 in 2013, the most recent year for which data is available. In this year’s index, Hong Kong retains the highest rating for economic freedom, 8.97 out of 10. The rest of this year’s top scores are Singapore, 8.52; New Zealand, 8.19; Switzerland, 8.16; United Arab Emirates, 8.15; Mauritius, 8.08; Jordan, 7.93; Ireland, 7.90; Canada, 7.89; and the United Kingdom and Chile at 7.87. The United States, once considered a bastion of economic freedom, now ranks 16th in the world with a score of 7.73. Due to a weakening rule of law, increasing regulation, and the ramifications of wars on terrorism and drugs, the United States has seen its economic freedom score plummet in recent years, compared to 2000 when it ranked second globally. *The content linked above reflects some slight recalculations since the report’s initial printing.

Indices & Data | Human Development Index The HDI was created to emphasize that people and their capabilities should be the ultimate criteria for assessing the development of a country, not economic growth alone. The HDI can also be used to question national policy choices, asking how two countries with the same level of GNI per capita can end up with different human development outcomes. These contrasts can stimulate debate about government policy priorities. The Human Development Index (HDI) is a summary measure of average achievement in key dimensions of human development: a long and healthy life, being knowledgeable and have a decent standard of living. The HDI is the geometric mean of normalized indices for each of the three dimensions. The health dimension is assessed by life expectancy at birth, the education dimension is measured by mean of years of schooling for adults aged 25 years and more and expected years of schooling for children of school entering age.

stats | Millennium Indicators The Millennium Development Goals Report 2013 was launched in Geneva by the Secretary-General on 1 July 2013. The report presents the yearly assessment of global and regional progress towards the MDGs. With the deadline for the MDGs on the horizon, this year's report examines where the targets have been met and where redoubled efforts are needed urgently to accelerate the progress. It also reveals that our attention needs to focus on disparities across geographical areas and population groups within countries. The report is based on comprehensive official statistics compiled by the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on MDG indicators led by the Statistics Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs. The report is available in all UN languages. The Statistical Annex of the report can be viewed here.
