The United Nations National Quality Assurance Frameworks Manual for Official Statistics was adopted by the Statistical Commission of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations in March 2019, and welcomed as an important contribution for guiding countries in the implementation of a national quality assurance framework, including for new data sources, new data providers, and data and statistics on the Sustainable Development Goal indicators. Building on and replacing the generic template and guidelines adopted in 2012, the Manual contains recommendations on quality assurance for official statistics, the United Nations National Quality Assurance Framework and practical guidance for developing and implementing a national quality assurance framework. The Manual is intended for use by anyone interested in or working on quality assurance of official statistics.

Preface

At its fiftieth session in March 2019, the United Nations Statistical Commission adopted the United Nations National Quality Assurance Frameworks Manual for Official Statistics and the recommendations contained therein (decision 50/106). The Statistical Commission welcomed the Manual as an important contribution in guiding countries in the implementation of a national quality assurance framework, including for new data sources, new data providers and for data and statistics of the Sustainable Development Goal indicators. The Manual was developed by the Expert Group on National Quality Assurance Frameworks, which was re-established by the Statistical Commission at its forty-eighth session in March 2017. The Manual builds on and replaces the generic United Nations national quality assurance framework template and guidelines (UN-NQAF template and guidelines) adopted in 2012.
