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.
A precondition for any production of data or other services by Eurostat is the knowledge about user needs and their satisfaction with the data and services offered so far. Every second year a general Eurostat User Satisfaction Survey is carried out, the reports of which can be found here.
