State and USAID: Bangladesh, the worlds seventh most-populous country and third largest Muslim-majority country, is a key strategic partner for the United States in South Asia. Bangladesh provides a moderate, tolerant and democratic alternative to violent extremism, promotes stability in a troubled region, sustains global peace as a major contributor of forces to peacekeeping operations, and contributes to global food security. Increasing economic opportunities, improving governance, and expanding social services will bolster private investment. Productive enterprises and broad-based economic growth will provide families with incomes to escape poverty resulting in a better quality of life and improved management of land and other natural resources. For the last decade, Bangladeshs economy has grown at an annual rate of about 5.8 percent, leading to a reduction of the poverty rate from 41 percent to 31.5 percent despite frequent natural disasters and significant development challenges. At the same time, dramatic improvements in public health have cut under-five mortality by 60 percent and maternal mortality by 66 percent. Despite these impressive gains, key challenges remain, including poor governance and rule of law, food insecurity, under-nutrition, and inadequate health care. More than 48 million Bangladeshis still live in poverty, 30 percent of women are chronically undernourished and 41 percent of children under five are stunted. U.S. assistance will address these problems and support efforts to stabilize Bangladeshs democracy. (Source: Congressional Budget Justification FY 2015)

Transaction data represents every individual financial record in an agency’s accounting system that
has been processed in the given time period for program work with implementing partners and other
administrative expenses. The data shown in the planned, obligated, and spent tabs represents the same
financial data at a higher level of aggregation (by country and sector only), thus this data is called Aggregated data.
The transaction data shows the same financial data at a more granular level. Each data record - or
financial transaction - contains up to 37 qualitative data fields, including descriptive titles, vendor names,
and location, along with the financial data. Thus, the transaction data is called Disaggregated data.
