CoverManual on sources and methods for the compilation of COFOG statistics - Classification of the Functions of Government (COFOG) — 2019 edition
This manual has been developed and agreed by the Task Force on COFOG in response to an increasing interest in high quality, comparable statistics on government expenditure broken down by purpose, according to the Classification of the Functions of Government (COFOG). It is its third edition. The manual covers user requirements, the analytical framework, methodological guidance, links with other international statistics, and countries' compilation practices. In comparison to previous editions, the manual was completely updated, most importantly to reflect the ESA 2010 (European System of Accounts) framework. Further guidance is given by the addition general guidance on the recording of consumption of fixed capital on own-account research and development (R&D) and correspondences among the COFOG classification and economic transactions used in the ESA 2010 framework as well as of sixteen new case studies.

CoverGlossary for transport statistics — 5th edition — 2019

The present fifth edition of the Glossary is the result of the valuable cooperation between Eurostat, UNECE and ITF (International Transport Forum) which put an effort into harmonising transport statistics at European and international level.

The Glossary comprises 744 definitions and represents a point of reference for all those involved in transport statistics. In this edition, the rail, road, inland waterways, maritime, air and intermodal freight transport chapters have been substantially revised. A new chapter on energy consumption has been added and a new accident section has been annexed to the maritime transport chapter.

The Glossary has been translated into all the official languages of the European Union. The use of illustrations aims to provide a better understanding of the definitions, on the basis that one picture is worth a thousand words. [+]

CoverData uncertainties: their sources and consequences

Official economic statistics are uncertain even if not always interpreted or treated as such. From a historical perspective, this paper reviews different categorisations of data uncertainty, specifically the traditional typology that distinguishes sampling from nonsampling errors and a newer typology of Manski (2015, Journal of Economic Literature). Throughout the importance of measuring and communicating these uncertainties is emphasised, as hard as it can prove to measure especially some sources of data uncertainty relevant for administrative and big datasets. Accordingly, this paper both seeks to encourage further work into the measurement and communication of data uncertainty in general and introduce the COMUNIKOS project at Eurostat. COMUNIKOS is designed to evaluate alternative ways of measuring and communicating data uncertainty specifically in contexts relevant for official economic statistics. [+]

CoverOverview of employment flash estimation methods

The document provides a general overview of methods that are used in Member States for compiling employment flash estimates at 30 or 45 days after the quarter-end. It guides the compiler in the estimation process by following a step-by-step approach. The document discusses available source data, estimation procedures, model strategies, methods for forecasting missing data and the analysis of results. Description of countries’ methodologies, links to available software and references to literature are included as well. [+]

CoverMerging statistics and geospatial information — Experiences and observations from national statistical authorities, 2012-2015 projects

Various actions during the course of 2012 — a paper to the European Statistical System Committee (ESSC), a workshop with national statistical institutes (NSIs) and mapping agencies, and a meeting in Prague of Director-Generals of national statistical institutes (DGINS) — resulted in Eurostat deciding to provide a series of grants to statistical authorities to facilitate work on the coordination of statistics and geospatial information.

The association of statistics and geography has the potential to generate information far beyond the simple representation of data on a map. Linking numerical and geo-referenced statistics in spatial analysis may help reveal relationships and phenomena which are difficult to discover by more traditional analyses of statistical databases. Merging statistics and geospatial information — experiences and observations from the national statistical authorities, 2012-2015 projects presents details of projects enacted with grants provided during the first four years of this initiative, showcasing the broad range of applications that may be developed using geospatial information.

CoverThe Measurement of Scientific, Technological and Innovation Activities — Oslo Manual 2018 — Guidelines

Jointly published by the OECD and Eurostat, the Oslo Manual is a key component of the series of measurement manuals produced by OECD under the title “The Measurement of Scientific, Technological and Innovation Activities”. As part of this family of manuals, it addresses the need to reflect how innovation systems operate beyond a description of the efforts made to invest in new knowledge (captured in the OECD Frascati Manual on resources dedicated to R&D), or the numbers and characteristics of patented inventions (as covered in the OECD Patent Statistics Manual).

CoverPractical guidelines for revising ESA (European System of Accounts) 2010 data — 2019 edition

This handbook has been prepared as a practical tool at the disposal of compilers of ESA 2010-based national and regional accounts. Its objective is to translate the voluntary EU recommendations on data revisions into specific practices ensuring accurate, reliable, consistent and comparable data. The handbook provides good practices for routine and benchmark revisions as well as for non-scheduled revisions. [+]

CoverMethodological manual on territorial typologies — 2018 edition

This publication provides a detailed view on the territorial typologies at grid, local and regional (NUTS) level, used by Eurostat particularly for disseminating data aggregated by cities, coastal areas or border regions, for example. It helps data suppliers of subnational statistics to ensure coherency and comparability, and end-users to understand and interpret the wide range of official statistics available at a subnational level for the different areas and regions of the EU.

CoverHarmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) methodological manual. 2018 edition

The Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) Methodological Manual represents a comprehensive overview of methods that are used in the compilation process for the HICP. The HICP provides the official measure of consumer price inflation in the euro area and the EU. The manual intends to be a practical guide to all steps necessary to produce an HICP and is thus useful for statisticians who are new to the field of price statistics and statistical offices aiming to set up a similar inflation measure. Users of the HICP, such as businesses, policy-makers and researchers may also find this manual useful to help them understand and interpret HICP data. Subjects covered include the HICP concepts, sampling and price collection procedures, methods for quality adjustment, index calculation and many other. [+]
