The power of data to improve our lives - United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA)

Through data, for example, we know how healthy people are, how many people live in poverty worldwide, how many children are not able to go to school, and where we stand on gender equality and our efforts to combat climate change.
