Every two years, the
Federal Statistical Office independently assesses the development and the
status quo of the national SD targets and indicators (see Indicator Reports
2006, 2008, 2012, 2014; 2016, and 2018; every four years the Indicator Reports
form part of the Progress Reports).
Since 2008, they
include - in addition to the detailed descriptions and trends of the indicators
- a brief statistical evaluation regarding their distance to the envisaged
target. This evaluation is graphically illustrated by weather symbols, e.g.
”sunny” or ”cloudy”, in line with (previous) Eurostat indicator-symbols. The
Indicator Reports can be downloaded in German and English. In 2018, out of 63
indicators 28 were assessed as predominantly positive (e.g. education or
renewable energy). The indicators for sustainable mobility and biodiversity
were among the issues with remained a difficult challenge. The next indicator
report will be published in 2020.
