Indicators and Monitoring

  The Netherlands

The Dutch National Statistical Office (CBS) publishes an annual report on the SDGs in the Netherlands. In 2016, the CBS was the first national statistical office in the world to provide a statistical measurement on SDG indicators. The second statistical report was published in March 2018. Between the two reports, the CBS increased data coverage from 37% of SDG indicators to 51% of indicators.

Starting from 2019 the Dutch national SDG reporting process has been integrated into the annual Monitor of Well-being and SDGs, which was the outcome of a process led by a Parliamentary committee to establish indicators for wellbeing comprising the social, economic and environmental dimensions.
