Note: As of survey year 2021, the survey of the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in households has been integrated into the microcensus as a survey component. Due to the methodological changes involved, only limited comparisons are possible between the results for the survey year 2021 and those for preceding years (break in time series).

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.
