The 2013 ESCAP Population Data Sheet for Asia and the Pacific focuses on maternal health. In light of the current challenges in achieving MDG 5 on maternal health, indicators such as births attended by skilled health personnel, maternal mortality ratio, unmet need for family planning and adolescent fertility rates are provided.

The Population Data Sheet, published annually by ESCAP, features key indicators on population and development displayed at country, subregional and regional levels. It is a useful tool for reference by researchers, policymakers and other stakeholders interested in the field of population and development.
