Conference on data quality for international organizations

06-05-2010  – 07-05-2010 Helsinki

The Conference on Data Quality for International Organizations will be held immediately after the Q2010 European Conference on Quality in Official Statistics (Helsinki, 4-6 May 2010) under the auspices of the Committee for the Coordination of Statistical Activities (CCSA). Eurostat and UNSD are organizing this fourth CCSA conference dedicated entirely to quality issues, which will be hosted by Statistics Finland.

The purpose of the conference is to provide statistical experts from international or supra-national organizations with a forum to discuss specific data quality issues related to their work and exchange experiences regarding the various quality mechanisms developed for improving the collection and dissemination of data. The main focus of this year’s conference will be on how international support for the development of national quality assurance frameworks can be provided, therefore, the discussions will also reflect upon the programme review on National Quality Assurance Frameworks carried out by Statistics Canada for the forty-first session of the Statistical Commission (see document E/CN.3/2010/2 from http://unstats.un.org/unsd/statcom/sc2010.htm; see alsohttp://unstats.un.org/unsd/dnss/nqaf.aspx).

Conference on data quality for international organizations

07-07-2008  – 08-07-2008 Rome

The Conference on Data Quality for International Organizations will be held immediately prior to the Q2008 - European Conference on Quality in Official Statistics (Rome, 9-11 July 2008) under the auspices of the Committee for the Coordination of Statistical Activities (CCSA).

The purpose of the conference is to provide statistical experts from international or supra-national organisations with a forum to discuss specific data quality issues related to their work and exchange experiences regarding the various quality mechanisms developed for improving the collection and dissemination of international data. It is proposed that the discussions at this year's meeting will build on the extensive work in the field of data quality assessment that has recently been undertaken by CCSA under the leadership of Eurostat, and which has led to the preparation of guidelines for the Implementation of Quality Assurance Frameworks for International Organizations Compiling Statistics (refer also to SA/2007/14/Add.4). This year's conference offers therefore a unique opportunity to discuss how these guidelines, or specific elements thereof, can be applied in international agencies.
