    Using small area estimation for data disaggregation of SDG indicators
    Case study based on SDG Indicator 5.a.1

    This technical report presents a case study based on the use of a small area estimation (SAE) approach to produce disaggregated estimates of SDG Indicator 5.a.1 by sex and at granular sub-national level. In particular, after introducing the framework for using SAE techniques, the report discusses a possible model-based technique to integrate a household or agricultural survey measuring the indicator of interest with census microdata, in order to borrow strength from a more comprehensive data source and produce estimates of higher quality. The discussed estimation approach could also be extended or customized for the integration of survey data with alternative data sources, such as administrative records, and/or geospatial information, and for the disaggregation of other (SDG) indicators based on survey microdata.

    An indirect estimation approach for disaggregating SDG indicators using survey data
    Case study based on SDG Indicator 2.1.2

    As the custodian United Nations (UN) agency of 21 Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicators, and a member of the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on SDG Indicators (IAEG-SDGs) and the Working Group on data disaggregation, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has been working to support countries in reporting SDG indicators at the required disaggregation level. To this end, FAO Office of Chief Statistician (OCS) has developed Guidelines on data disaggregation for SDG Indicators using survey data (FAO, 2021), which offer methodological and practical guidance for the production of direct and indirect estimates of SDG indicators having surveys as their main or preferred data source. This technical report presents a case study based on the so-called “projection estimator”, allowing the integration of two independent surveys for the production of synthetic disaggregated estimates. In particular, the publication presents a practical exercise focused on the production of disaggregated estimates for SDG Indicator 2.1.2, on the Prevalence of Moderate or Severe Food Insecurity in the population based on the Food Insecurity Experience Scale (FIES). This application – based on survey microdata from Malawi – expands and enriches the brief practical exercise presented in the Guidelines.

    Sampling and estimation guide for SDG Indicator 2.4.1: Version 1.0 2024
    Also available in:

    This guide describes the estimation process for Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Indicator 2.4.1 on agricultural sustainability, considering its subindicators, across different levels of disaggregation within a country. It complements the 2021 Sampling guidance for SDG Indicator 2.4.1 published by FAO. While the former brings useful information concerning a general sampling and estimation perspective, this guide considers the use of dual-frame sampling designs in national agricultural surveys, which combine area frames with list frames. Although the focus is on dual-frame designs, the results described in this guide also apply to situations relevant to countries using agricultural surveys based on single area or list frames. Methodological documents and reports of practical experiences that reflect the realities of various countries, including Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico and Peru, were used as the basis for developing the topics in this guide, as well as for providing examples of the fundamental concepts in this initial version.
