Types of discrepancy in Millennium Development Goal indicator values and measures for statistical reconciliation: Overall framework and implementation in selected thematic areas and indicators
Daniel Taccari and
No 81, Estudios Estadísticos from Naciones Unidas Comisión Económica para América Latina y el Caribe (CEPAL)
This document proposes a conceptual and methodological framework for analysing discrepancies between indicator values for monitoring Millennium Development Goals (MDG) used globally and those used by Latin American and Caribbean countries in their national MDG reports. It includes an implementation exercise on a small set of indicators for specific MDG targets (employment, education, child mortality, maternal mortality and water and sanitation). Both the proposed methodology and the analysis made after comparing these values were presented for discussion at the fifth annual seminar on advances and challenges in statistical reconciliation for monitoring progress towards the Millennium Development Goals in Latin America, held in Buenos Aires (Argentina) on 5-6 November 2009, and at the sixth annual seminar on Millennium Development Goal indicators in Latin America and the Caribbean, in Mexico City, on 1-2 December 2011.
