This draft paper presents a preliminary country-level SDG Index using data available today to measuring SDG achievement across the 17 SDGs. The paper also proposes a first SDG Dashboard for OECD countries that presents SDG data visually for each country and goal to help stakeholders identify the most urgent priorities in each country and region. It illustrates that even countries that rank highly on the overall SDG Index may face major challenges on some goals.
