The quality of statistics depends on whether the statistical output satisfies its intended use. For example, the ESS definition of quality is derived from the ISO 9000 family of standards, “the degree to which a set of inherent characteristics of an object fulfils equirements” (ISO 2015). In official statistics, the object may include “a statistical product, service, process, system, methodology, organisation, resource, or [data] input” (Eurostat 2020, p.17). In a census context, the quality of administrative data used should therefore be considered in relation to the ways data are collected and processed by data suppliers and NSOs, through to the final census outputs.
