TransMonEE database

The Transformative Monitoring for Enhanced Equity (TransMonEE) Database; established in 1992 by the UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre; captures a vast range of data relevant to social and economic issues relevant to the situation and wellbeing of children; young people and women in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

The data represent a particularly useful tool for governments; civil society organization; funding institutions and academia in considering their decisions; policies; programmes and agendas. The database is updated every year thanks to the collaboration of National Statistical Offices (NSOs) in the countries of CEE/CIS.

Most of the data are collected directly from National Statistical Offices using a standardized template. The data originates from both administrative data sources and household surveys.

Data generally cover the period from 1989 up to now. Disaggregated data for many indicators are available since 2005. As with any cross-national statistical database, concepts and measures may differ across countries despite all the efforts to standardise indicator definitions. Therefore, users are strongly encouraged to consult the notes on specific data. Moreover, due to the different data sources for some indicators, the data presented in the TransMonEE database may diverge from those presented in other UNICEF publications and databases.
