Established in 2015 by the United Nations, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) specify 17 universal goals for achieving "peace and prosperity" by reducing inequality, improving health and education, and more. Each goal contains a number of specific targets and indicators for measurement and is intended to be achieved by 2030. This dataset provides estimates on progress for indicator 5.2.1, the proportion of age-standardized prevalence of ever-partnered women ages 15 years and older who experienced physical or sexual violence by a current or former intimate partner in the last 12 months. Progress on this indicator is reported as index values (scaled 0 to 100) which cover 204 countries and territories from 1990 to 2021. The indicator is a component of SDG 5 (Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls), target 5.2 (Eliminate all forms of violence against all women and girls in the public and private spheres, including trafficking and sexual and other types of exploitation).
