This handbook of geospatial statistics — based on a point-based statistical information system — aims at promoting, developing and consolidating the use of specific statistical methods available to NSIs. The handbook has been compiled by INSEE with funding from EUROSTAT. It starts off by describing geolocalised data, measuring the importance of spatial effects as well as taking the spatial effects into account, while closing with advanced techniques for graph portioning and confidentiality. It is expected that the practical examples and their implementation in R will make the statistical production process more efficient. [+]

Directrices del Sistema Estadístico Europeo (SEE) sobre desagregación temporal, evaluación comparativa y conciliación. Edición 2018en Estadisticas
In official statistics there is an increasing demand for indicators at a higher frequency than have traditionally been observed. Eurostat and the European Statistical System (ESS) developed these guidelines to help data producers derive high frequency data (e.g. quarterly or monthly) from low frequency data (e.g. annual) and to address related temporal and accounting constraints. These guidelines are aimed at those involved in the production and analysis of infra-annual European statistics (compiled by Eurostat) and corresponding country specific official statistics compiled by National Statistical Institutes (NSIs). They have been conceived both for experts and beginners. In order to rank the different methods, each issue is discussed following a structure with three parts: a description (free text presenting the problem), a list of options (various possibilities to deal with the specific issue) and a list of ranked alternatives (A,B,C). Namely: [+]

This publication provides an overview of the methodology used in the different areas of Eurostat culture statistics available from harmonised EU data collections.
These statistics cover areas such as cultural employment, enterprises in cultural sectors, international trade in cultural goods and services, cultural participation, households’ cultural expenditure, etc. They are publicly available in Eurostat’s database (Eurobase) and analysed in several Statistics explained articles and Eurostat ‘culture statistics’ pocketbooks (the third edition of which was published in 2016).
The methodology used in compiling the statistics is based on the ESSnet-Culture final report, which was published in 2012. Since then, slight adjustments have been made to the statistical scope of ‘culture’ and more EU harmonised surveys have been searched for culture-related data.
The aim of this guide is to summarise the methodology used for culture statistics, as applied in 2018. The definitions and methods presented here refer primarily to the general methodology used for the various EU surveys, but some (e.g. lists of ‘cultural codes’ in different classifications, a matrix used for cultural employment and cultural aggregates compiled in several data collections) are specific to culture statistics.
