Task Force on Measuring the quality of administrative sources for use in censuses

Contact person: Mr. Paolo Valente

Objectives:

The objective of the Task Force is to develop guidance on the measurement of the quality of administrative sources for use in censuses. The Task Force would build on the work of Eurostat’s ESS.VIP ADMIN project on the use of administrative sources in the production of official statistics. It should consider the relevance of the results for all UNECE countries.

The work of the Task Force should start by taking stock and collecting all available material on the measurement of the quality of administrative sources for use in censuses. In carrying out its activities, the Task Force should consider the following:

  • Potential of administrative sources to provide the data required for the census;
  • Quality requirements: how good is good enough; how to decide whether administrative data sources and/or administrative data are fit for use.
