Health and Education Service Delivery Indicator Definitions

$79 / year

This dataset is a subset of the Health and Education Service Delivery Indicators in Africa that includes operational definitions of the health and education service delivery indicators used in the Service Delivery Indicators project of the World Bank and its partners.

Complexity

This dataset is from the data catalog of the World Bank under the Service Delivery Indicators dataset. Information from this dataset provides detailed information on the health and education Service Delivery Indicators in terms of operational definitions, the unit of measure, and statistical concepts and methodology.

The Service Delivery Indicators (SDI) project collects nationally representative data focusing mainly on education and health specifically performance and quality of service delivered by primary schools and frontline health facilities. This project is conducted by the World Bank, the African Development Bank, and the African Economic Research Consortium. The program seeks to reposition the dialogue on human development in Africa within the context of the effectiveness of public spending and accountability for service delivery. Because of the global economic situation, taxpayers demand accountability for public resources and for the efficient use of public resources and budget allocations to education and health particularly by developing country governments.
