The mission of the Federal Statistical Office is to provide and disseminate statistical information. This information must be objective, independent and of high quality. It is available to all: politicians, administration, business and industry, science and citizens. The Federal Statistics Act defines the responsibilities of the Federal Statistical Office.

The international organisations (custodian agencies) that are responsible for the respective SDG-indicator publish methodical explanations for the indicator - the so-called global metadata.

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

This tab provides relevant information on the SDG indicators - such as the political target, the primary responsible organisation (custodian agency) and a link to the global metadata. The global metadata is provided by the United Nations Statistics Division.
