Hacking the sustainable development goals: can US cities measure up?

This report focuses on a particular challenge that city leaders face in hacking the SDGs—data. Gaps in data that are generated locally or disaggregated from national sources to the local level are widely perceived as one of the main obstacles for cities to engage in the SDGs. This report investigates whether data are available to measure progress on the SDGs in urban areas in the United States.
