  • About this Release

In recent years, official statistical agencies have increasingly used analytical methods to compile statistics. For example, econometric models are sometimes applied to statistical processes or used to solve certain statistical problems. Modelling techniques have enabled statisticians to meet the demand for statistics that otherwise would be too costly or difficult to produce.
This paper proposes a framework that may be used to assess the quality of statistics that are generated using econometric models. We applied the framework to a recent project that is intended to estimate business employee numbers based on the Economic Activity Survey (EAS) and Business Income Tax (BIT) data.
