  • US Cities SDG Index Consultation

    The SDSN presents the U.S. Cities Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Index for the 100 most populous cities (measured as Metropolitan Statistical Areas, or MSAs) in the United States of America (US), covering some 70% of the population. The SDG index synthesizes data available today across 53 indicators spanning 16 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that were agreed by all countries in September 2015. The data provides a more holistic and comprehensive assessment of sustainable development challenges faced by US cities than available through other metrics. Results show that all US cities, even those at the top of the index, have far to go to achieve the SDGs. The U.S. Cities SDG Index aims to set a framework for action and help urban leaders address implementation challenges across cities.
