Footnote: The population-data used for this indicator is based on the 2011 census, as no other data sets could provide enough geographic granularity to adequately assess how many people live within 2km of an all-season road.

This table provides metadata for the actual indicator available from UK statistics closest to the corresponding global SDG indicator. Please note that even when the global SDG indicator is fully available from UK statistics, this table should be consulted for information on national methodology and other UK-specific metadata information.
