Report of the Meeting of Experts on Social Indicators of Development, Rabat, 8-11 April 1991
This report focuses on the development of indicators and the acquisition of information needed to analyse changes in levels of living as regards consumption of food, housing, clothing, education, healthcare and necessary social services. Because concerns in this domains transcend national and cultural boundaries, governments need to know how well they are addressing them over time and in relation to other countries. Also, indicators in these domains are the most important ones for developing countries since such large portions of their population live in or near poverty.
