The present article presents key information and indicators on the world youth population before and after United Nations (UN) country members’ adoption of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development in 2015. In doing so, it provides about a five year window of facts and figures, which can be used by researchers and policy makers to evaluate the effectiveness of early stage implementation of SDGs strategies in relation to youth education, access to information and communication technologies (ICT), and well-being worldwide. The presented data covers 409747 youth respondents distributed across 46 countries, 199511 of the respondents are from the 2015 cross-section, and the remaining 210236 from the 2018 cross-section. The data is further supplemented with spatial metadata containing the geographical coordinates of each of the covered 46 countries, which can be used for spatial Analysis and econometric modeling as illustrated in the present data article.
