Coming soon: the 2019 SDG Index and Dashboards Report will launch on June 19th.


2018 SDG Index and Dashboards

The 2018 SDG Index and Dashboards report presents a revised and updated assessment of countries’ distance to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It includes detailed SDG Dashboards to help identify implementation priorities for the SDGs. The report also provides a ranking of countries by the aggregate SDG Index of overall performance.

This year’s report includes several improvements and additions in comparison to previous versions. It incorporates trend data for the first time. New indicators have been added to cover more accurately the SDGs and associated targets with a special focus on “leave no one behind” for OECD member states. We present data for all 193 UN member states and estimate absolute SDG achievement gaps to complement per capita estimates. Building on the 2017 report, we expand the analysis of international SDG spillovers and present an overall SDG spillover index.

2017 SDG Index and Dashboards

The 2017 edition of the SDG Index and Dashboards Report provides a report card for country performance on the historic Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The annual report shows how leaders can deliver on their promise and it urges countries not to lose the momentum for important reforms.

2016 SDG Index and Dashboards

The 2016 edition of the SDG Index and Dashboards Report introduced the unofficial SDG Index and Dashboards and summarized the preliminary results. The report created for the first time a measure of the SDG starting point for 2015 at the country level. It was created to help every country identify priorities for early action, understand the key implementation challenges and identify the gaps that must be closed in order to achieve the SDGs by 2030.

2015 SDG Index Report

The 2015 SDG Index Report measured the SDG performance of 34 industrialized countries. It was published by Bertelsmann Stiftung and produced with support of the SDSN Secretariat and member institutions.
