The objective is to validate the data collected by Eurostat in order to:

  • Ensure the internal consistency of the data provided (consistency of historical changes, etc.);
  • Ensure comparability of data between member states despite different collection methodologies.


As part of this study, ICEDD participated in:

  • The implementation of the methodology for validating the data gathered;
  • The detection of potential outliers and the most frequent errors made;
  • The proposal to clarify certain agreements to allow greater comparability of the data collected.
