  1. UNECE UNECE and MDG-Monitoring:Database and regional indicators

  2. UNECE Regional MDG Database: Principles • UNECE has a mandate to produce a regional MDG database • Focus on Eastern Europe, South-eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia • Added value for member states • No duplication of efforts • No increase in national burden but alleviate

  3. Regional MDG-database: further considerations • National estimates should be acknowledged • Different alternative/harmonized UN estimates exist • Comparing estimates and sources useful • All data are publicly available but not in one place and not documented • General audience should not be confused with multiple estimates • UNECE provides a neutral platform with a regional focus

  4. MDG data: Issues • Comparability of data: • Several estimates for the same MDG-indicator for the same period exist, sometimes even in one National MDG-report • Limited deviation from recommended (exact definition often differs) • Alternative indicators exist • Disaggregated data exists • Updated and corrected figures published •  Need for overview with adequate metadata for interpretation

  5. UNECE regional MDG-database: • Three levels in UNECE regional MDG-database: 1) Official National MDG data 2) Official UN MDG data 3) Data Repository • Other: Additional Regional Indicators • Subcategories and Disaggregated data when relevant (e.g. by sex, rural/urban) • Additional regional/national MDG-indicators

  6. 1) Official National MDG estimates • Regional overview nationally authorized MDGs estimates • Sources: • National MDG-reports • National MDG websites • Official statistics (NSO yearbooks and publications) • Data request by UN-family • Updates: Most recent estimate for certain period only • Relevant disaggregated MDG indicators • Additional regional MDG indicators

  7. 2) Official UN-estimates • Data Sources: • Copy or link to unstats.un.org • Copy or link to additional indicators from other UN agencies (e.g. WHO, WB etc.) • Use: • To compare with official national data • Additional indicators for analysis • Compare: more harmonized data • Sometimes estimates when no national data

  8. 3) Data repository: • All national MDG-data produced • Historical backup • Digital overview in one location (incl time-series) • More alternative indicators and disaggregated data • Extensive Metadata • More selection criteria (e.g. exact definition, broadly similar, referring to same MDG • For national and international experts, not for general public

  9. Metadata • Reference to document and original source of data • Type of source, reference period (retrospective survey data), sample size, sample population etc. • Exact definition of data and grouping into broader concept group • Method used (e.g. direct/indirect, regression analysis etc.) • Indication of data quality • English and Russian version (subject to funds available)

  10. Other • Languages: • English • Russian • Manuals, recommendations etc. • Sources might be added in .pdf format (National MDG-Reports, Manuals etc.) • Links to national MDG websites can be added

  11. UNECE regional MDG-database: summary of advantages • National producers and users: • Regional comparison • Overview of national sources/estimates (might explain differences with UN-estimates) with detailed metadata • Comparison with official UN-estimates • Less data requests • International Organizations: • Source of data for estimates • Access to additional indicators • Detailed Metadata and in English • General public: • Regional overview of official national estimates of MDGs • Other (expert) users: • Multiple estimates and sources and extensive metadata • Additional indicators for analysis

  12. Additional Indicators Regional Database: • Relevant additional indicators, subcategories or disaggregated indicators • Principles: • No extra data requests • Relevant for the region • General availability • Only if wider regional coverage  regional relevance & general agreement to include

  13. Additional Indicators MDG 4&5: sources/types • Subcategories official UN MDGs • Disaggregated official UN MDGs • Additional from other International Agencies • Regional/National subcategories • Regional/National disaggregated MDGs • Regional/National additional MDGs

  14. Subcategories MDG 5: UNSTATS • Current contraceptive use among married women 15-49 years old, any method: • Modern Method • Condom use (contraceptive purposes) • Unmet need for family planning, total: • Spacing • Limiting

  15. Additional Indicators MDG 4&5: International Agencies • Goal 4 : Reduce Infant & Child mortality: • Prenatal mortality rate, per 1,000 life births (WHO) • Breast-feeding rate at 3 and at 6 months (WHO) • Goal 5: Improve Maternal Health • Rate of induced abortions (WHO)

  16. Availability of data (at WHO):

  17. Additional Indicators and subcategories National MDG-reports MDG 4 (selection): • Neonatal mortality (early neonatal, post-neonatal) • Still birth rate (perinatal mortality rate) • Immunization against diseases other than measles • Under-five mortality associated with thalassemia • Prevalence of respiratory illnesses among the under 5 age Group. • Percentage of newborn children weighting less than 2,500 grams • Proportion of exclusively breast-fed infants under 4 month • Percentage of breastfeeding children under 6 month

  18. Additional Indicators and Subcategories National MDG-reports MDG 5 (selection): • Abortion rate 15-44/49 • Abortion rate adolescents/under 20 • Maternal mortality by cause • Number of Gynaecologists and Qualified Midwifery staff per 1,000 women • Adolescent contraceptive prevalence

  19. Disaggregations (& subgroups) National MDG-reports MDG 4 & 5 (selection): • by sex: IMR/q5 • by rural/urban: MDG4&5 • by region: IMR/q5 • by cause: MDG4.1, 4.2 & 5.2 • By ethnic group • Disability status

  20. For Discussion / Feedback needed: • Usefulness of having both Official national estimate versus official UN estimate • Usefulness of data repository • Metadata required • Data collection mechanism: Specific data collection; data via other UN agencies; or other UN-agencies data via UNECE • Additional indictors to include: see next slide

  21. Include in Official National Estimates, MDG 4&5: Proposal • Subcategories MDG5 as in unstats.un.org • Disaggregates by sex and rural/urban: for MDG-indicators with five countries or more reporting • Additional indicators: • Proportion of (exclusively) breast-fed under 6 months • Abortion rate women of fertile ages • Perinatal mortality rate • Other Proposals?

  22. Additional Options Repository, MDG 4 & 5: • Subcategory (MDG 5.3): adolescent contraceptive prevalence rate • Subcategory: adolescents abortion rate • Subcategories perinatal mortality: Neonatal mortality & still birth • Any other disaggregate published in National MDG-report of at least 5 countries • Any other indicator published in National MDG-report of at least 5 countries
