General evaluation results

Eurostat conducts two types of evaluations that assess Eurostat's performance in general:


Evaluations of the Community Statistical Programmes

The obligation to carry out mid-term and ex-post evaluations of the five-year Community Statistical Programmes is contained in the Programme itself. The evaluations should assess whether and how the objectives of the programme were achieved and lead to some recommendations for improvements in the design and monitoring of future programmes.
