Whitepaper: Data Quality: A Comparison of IMF's Data Quality Assessment Framework (DQAF) and Eurostat's Quality Definition

by IMFJan 01, 2008

This paper from IMF explains about the UN Statistical Commission meeting held in March 2002, the IMF and Eurostat that undertook to review their respective quality approaches in response to concerns expressed by Joint Member States about differences in the Data Quality Assessment Framework used by the IMF and the quality definition of Eurostat. Interested member states´┐Ż support was sought during the exercise, and other international organizations were supportive of the exercise. This led to the identification and further harmonization of quality aspects that are common between the two approaches.
