    • Relevant for MDGs and/or UNICEF’s mission

    • Development impact of the selection of the indicator

    • Relevant for LICs and well as MICs

    • Standard qualities of social indicators

    • Could be collected also at sub-national levels

    • Both absolute numbers and rates/ratios

    • Could be benchmarked by routine stats or representative surveys

  • It is expected that GIVAS will add other indicators…
