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.
