Jamaica Survey of Living Conditions 2019: Overview

Monitoring social indicators now takes on even greater importance with the need to continuously assess Jamaica’s progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the various outcomes in the Vision 2030 Jamaica National Development Plan.


Progress Report on the SDG 2019/2020

Jamaica’s 2020 ranking of 84th out of 166 countries, with an index score of 68.7, may be interpreted as the estimated percentage achievement of the SDGs. Regionally, Jamaica was ranked highest in the Caribbean sub region, and 12th overall in Latin America and the Caribbean. The 2021 report (published after the time of writing) noted an improvement in Jamaica’s rank to 81st and index score of 68.9.
