Revealing disparities, advancing children's rights.

UNICEF has learned through experience that problems that go unmeasured often go unsolved. We believe that consistent, credible data about children’s situations are critical to the improvement of their lives – and indispensable to realizing the rights of every child.

Data continue to support advocacy and action on behalf of the world’s 2.2 billion children, providing governments with facts on which to base decisions and actions to improve children’s lives. And new ways of collecting and using data will help target investments and interventions to reach the most vulnerable children.

Data do not, of themselves, change the world. They make change possible – by identifying needs, supporting advocacy, and gauging progress.
