Designing a Model to Classify Economies by Level of Satisfaction of Deficiency Needs in Order to Monitor Accomplishment of Sustainable Development Goals


This report explains an attempt to create a statistical model that shows a state of each economy in terms of its ability to satisfy deficiency needs of its population. After presenting an idea of representation of five variables (Improved water source, Prevalence of undernourishment, Electricity access, Inflation, and Unemployment) using a radar chart, it suggests conclusions and possible approaches for similar types of results observed among 179 countries. Additionally, it categorizes all analyzed countries by similar properties and discusses use of this classification.The aim of this work is to show that using appropriate data sources that relate to deficiency needs together with appropriate background information may ease focusing on the correct issue in a particular economy or region. It assesses targets 2.1, 6.1, 7.1, and 8.5 of the Sustainable Development Goals while striving to partially satisfy goal 17.19.
