WHO FCTC Indicator Compendium

This Indicator Compendium was developed in response to the mandate given to the Convention Secretariat by the fifth session of the Conference of the Parties (decision FCTC/COP5(11)).

The Compendium is aimed at facilitating access to treaty-specific indicators and their usage by Parties. The Compendium may also be utilized for data collection and epidemiological surveillance of tobacco use and related social, economic and health indicators within countries, in addition to further facilitating exchange of information on these indicators at both regional and global levels, in line with Parties’ obligations under Articles 20.3 and 20.4 of the Convention.

This is the first edition of this Compendium and is proposed for use by the Parties in the 2014 reporting cycle. Any feedback, comments and suggestions will be appreciated both before and at the sixth session of the Conference of the Parties, and they will be taken into account for any further work on the Compendium.

Questions or suggestions concerning the content of the Compendium can be addressed to the Convention Secretariat at: copreporting@who.int
