Overview: This research note proposes two complementary procedures that can supplement the present efforts of the UN Human Settlements Programme (UN Habitat) in monitoring Target 11 of the Millennium Development Goals: “By 2020, to have achieved a significant improvement in the lives of at least 100 million slum dwellers.” The proposed procedures rely on two sources of data: (a) available national population censuses for the two latest census periods; and (b) new data—involving both remote–sensing data (e.g. air photographs), household surveys, and structured institutional surveys in a global sample of 120 cities.
