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.

Health workers, according to the practising concept (with direct patient contact):
|Comparability with global metadata||
Traditionally, the time series has been estimated using two measurements: density of physicians, and density of nursing and midwifery personnel. In the context of the SDG agenda, the dataset has been expanded to physicians, nursing personnel, midwifery personnel, dentistry personnel and pharmaceutical personnel. The dataset is planned to progressively expand to cover all health cadres. As long as the global metadata of the SDG indicator 3.c.1 are not completed, the time series “health workers” can not be considered as compliant. The four additional time series are listed as sub-indicators in the global metadata.
