UNICEF Middle East and North Africa Data Portal
Indicators on the Situation of Children
Data hold more potential than ever to shape children’s lives and living conditions. They are an essential public good to inform and assess the effectiveness of policy, programming and advocacy to advance the realization of children’s rights. UNICEF invests strategically to make timely and quality data on the situation of children available to policymakers, child rights advocates, development practitioners, researchers and civil society.
The UNICEF Middle East and North Africa’s Data Portal provides a compilation of high-quality, internationally comparable statistics reflecting the situation of children in the 20 countries of the Middle East and North Africa, including regional averages. The Data Warehouse contains time-series data for over 150 indicators, covering various child rights and well-being domains. The indicators are disaggregated by sex, urban/rural residence and wealth quintiles where possible. The Country Factsheets focus on five regional “accelerators” and give an overview of the most recent child-related statistics for each country
The Middle East and North Africa Data Portal is linked to the Global UNICEF Data Warehouse, where users can access data from other regions and additional disaggregated data for selected indicators.
