Indicator Resources


This content is currently under revision to align with the recently updated ADS 201.

For guidance and support associated with revisions to ADS 201, please see the Program Cycle overview page.

This document complements ADS 201 by providing a list of recent indicator resources across sectors including indicator handbooks, databases, tools, and indices.

The resources are both internal and external to USAID. The audience for this list is Monitoring and Evaluation, (M&E) Specialists, Project and Activity Design Teams, and technical teams.

This list includes custom indicators and standard foreign assistance indicators, and is intended as a resource for selecting or developing monitoring indicators for USAID strategies, projects, and activities. It is not an exhaustive list and does not imply endorsement of any specific indicator or data source. In addition to resources listed below, Missions are encouraged to review existing partner government development plan indicators for their country or region.
