The State of the World's Children 2014 in Numbers: Every Child Counts

UNICEF, via State of the World's Children, has been publishing tables of standardized global and national statistics aimed at providing a picture of children's circumstances in the world.

Data collection techniques have changed and evolved, but the basic idea behind it has not: credible data about children's situations are critical to the improvement of their lives and the realization of the rights of every child.

Although data in itself cannot change the world, it can make change possible by revealing disparities, identifying needs, supporting advocacy, and gauging progress. What matters most is that the data is used to make positive change for children and communities.

This document provides multifaceted tables of data on the lives of children all over the world: from access to fresh water, to general care and education.
