Eurostat’s mission is to provide the European Union with a high-quality statistical information service. Accordingly, quality considerations play a central role with regard to Eurostat corporate management as well as our day-to-day statistical operations.
The European Statistics Code of Practice sets the standard for developing, producing and disseminating European statistics. It builds upon a common European Statistical System (ESS) definition of quality in statistics and targets all relevant areas from the institutional environment, the statistical production processes to our output: European official statistics.
