Not applicable
This indicator is marked as not applicable for the provision of national time series. Possible reasons are:

  • The indicator is a global indicator that is to say the provision of national data for this indicator would not be meaningful.
  • The indicator or the corresponding target refers to a specific group of countries (for example small island developing states), to which Germany does not belong.
  • The indicator is classified as not applicable due to other reasons, for example following the relevant European classification by Eurostat.

The international organisations (custodian agencies) that are responsible for the respective SDG-indicator publish methodological guidelines for the calculation of the indicator - so-called global metadata.

Displayed here are the national time series that fit the global metadata best as well as their comparability with the global metadata. Please find further methodical and country-specific information of the time series in the related national metadata.
