Tools for data quality

Quality tools have been developed by Istat in order to improve the quality of statistical processes and products, consistently with Istat’s mission and according to the framework of the European Statistical System.

They result from a valuable work done at international level with the relevant contribution from Istat experts (for further information see also Istat quality policy).

Istat tools for statistical product and process quality improvement can be useful and relevant for Institutions belonging to the Italian National Statistical System, as well as for researchers and also, in a broadly way, for data users. They are, in particular, the Quality Guidelines for statistical processes, initially developed for statistical surveys and then for the processes using administrative sources, that have been used in Quality audits for continuous improvement of Istat’s statistical products and processes.

In addition, to enhance transparency and to satisfy the needs of different users, the quality documentation of Istat statistical processes is available throughout:
