Goal 16 Assessment

The Government of the FSM has prioritized indicators (SDG Goal 16)

  • 16.1.1: Number of victims of intentional homicide per 100,000 population, by sex and age This information is readily available, on average less than 1 per year; National Police have all the records
  • 16.1.3: Proportion of population subjected to physical, psychological or sexual violence in the previous 12 months This is seen as an important indicator, but can only report on what is collected and these numbers are low, but probably hide true numbers.
  • 16.1.4: Proportion of population that feel safe walking alone around the area they live This indicator is an issue in Chuuk State where people in general do not feel safe walking alone at night, but not an issue for other states
  • 16.2.1: Proportion of children aged 1-17 years who experienced any physical punishment and/or psychological aggression by caregivers in the past month
  • 16.2.3: Proportion of young women and men aged 18-29 years who experienced sexual violence by age 18
  • 16.3.1: Proportion of victims of violence in the previous 12 months who reported their victimization to competent authorities or other officially recognized conflict resolution mechanisms
  • 16.3.2: Unsentenced detainees as a proportion of overall prison population Basic Security act of 2016
  • 16.4.1: Total value of inward and outward illicit financial flows (in current United States dollars) Suspicious Activity Report

  • 16.6.1: Primary government expenditures as a proportion of original approved budget, by sector (or by budget codes or similar)This indicator will come from the recent PEFA Report; this only covered the National Government so calculations will need to be made for the States
  • 16.9.1 Proportion of children under 5 years of age whose births have been registered with a civil authority, by ageThis indicator has 100% coverage but at times the reporting of births on outer islands can be delayed due to communications issues.
