Logical Consistency Data presented in this year’s statistical tables generally reflect information available as of August 2014. Efforts have been made to maximize the comparability of statistics across countries and over time. Nevertheless, data used at the country level may differ in terms of the methods used to collect data or arrive at estimates, and in terms of the populations covered. Furthermore, data presented here are subject to evolving methodologies, revisions of time series data (e.g., immunization, maternal mortality ratios) and changing regional classifications. Also, data comparable from one year to the next are unavailable for some indicators. It is therefore not advisable to compare data from consecutive editions of The State of the World’s Children.
Completeness There are no known issues with completeness.
