Methodologies for Authorities of the State Statistical Service and ONAs


On the basis of the authorization resulting from Act No. 89/1995 Sb (§ 4 para. 3) and from Regulation (EC) No. 223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council on European statistics (Article 5a para. 2 letter g), the Czech Statistical Office, as part of its coordination role, developed the guidelines, so-called methodological framework to ensure the quality of the statistics produced (listed below). The aim of these methodologies is to specify the procedures for fulfilling the relevant principles of the European Statistics Code of Practice and thus create a knowledge base for other producers of European statistics in the Czech Republic.

In order to ensure the quality of statistics produced by other producers, the Czech Statistical Office regularly evaluates how these producers fulfill the procedures given by the methodologies.
