A pilot study on disaggregating SDG indicators by migratory status

On 25 September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly formally adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, along with a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The commitment to “leave no one behind” is a key feature of the SDG agenda and acknowledges migrants as a population group with growing global relevance and particular vulnerabilities. Target 17.18 explicitly calls for the need to disaggregate SDG-relevant data by migratory status. The International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC) presents this pilot study on the potential of using harmonized census data to monitor progress towards the SDG disaggregation goal at the global level and assess to what extent migrants may be “left behind.”
