Module overview

This module is one of two taught modules which together with a placement module make up training to supplement the MSc in Official Statistics and leading to the EMOS (European Masters in Official Statistics) accreditation awarded by Eurostat. It covers the variety of administrative data which can be used in official statistics, the techniques by which they can be combined with other data sources and used as a basis for statistical outputs, and the way in which quality of data and estimates which use administrative data are assessed and maintained. It compares different situations around Europe to demonstrate particular points.
