European Conference on Quality in Survey Statistics

City Hall, Cardiff, UK

24 - 26 April 2006

Hosted jointly by the UK Office for National Statistics and Eurostat, the Q2006 conference will be the third in a series of scientific gatherings covering important methodological and quality-related topics of relevance to the European Statistical System.

The conference will focus on topics relating to quality criteria such as: accuracy, relevance, timeliness, accessibility, comparability and coherence of survey statistics.

With quality a major concern for all statistical organisations and users, this conference provides an ideal forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences.

The Director Generals of Eurostat and the European National Statistical Institutes have committed to a strategy of continuous quality improvement, as a result of the work accomplished by the European Leadership Expert Group (LEG) on Quality in 2001.

A clear need to improve co-operation and exchange in the field of quality in statistics was identified. Q2006 will build on the successful gatherings at the International Conference on Quality in Official Statistics in Stockholm (Q2001) and the European Conference on Quality and Methodology in Official Statistics in Mainz (Q2004).

These conferences will now be held biennially.
