Data and Statistics

Data and statistical analysis in the Asia and Pacific region contributes to knowledge generation in ADB, helping strengthen its institutional priorities and operational effectiveness in its developing member countries.

Poverty and Social Statistics

ADB's Key Indicators series presents the latest statistics on a comprehensive set of economic, financial, social, environmental, and SDG indicators for its 49 regional members. It is designed to serve as a resource for information on development issues across the region for a wide audience, including policy makers, development practitioners, government officials, researchers, students, and the general public.

There is also the option to download a fact sheet on each goal and its indicators. The indicators are presented according to the United Nations SDG global indicator framework.

Economic, social, and environmental developments across Asia and the Pacific. A brief summary of each theme, the data topics they cover, the full story on key trends, fact sheets, visualisation of the data, and a full listing of all indicators associated with each theme are available.

Global Value Chains

Global Value Chains (GVCs) have become a dominant feature of world trade. As global productions are increasingly being organized around these networks, the implications of increasing connectivity, and its relation to development objectives have become a policy imperative for modern economies. It is therefore important to capture and measure GVCs for informing policy decisions that attempt to leverage these networks for economic growth and development.
