 Millennium development goals – the key datasets you need to know

As the post-2015 process kicks off in London we look at the key datasets on progress made towards meeting the MDGs
 
The UK is hosting the first high-level panel this week on what comes after the millennium development goals (MDGs). Progress on the MDGs has been mixed, however, with persistent inequalities both within and between countries.

We've pulled together the key data on the eight goals. Although the MDG framework may seem overly technical, with its dozens of time-bound, results-based targets and indicators, it's the product of very political negotiations, with some issues receiving more attention and prominence than others.
