European Peer Review 2022: Quality and independence of Statistics Austria will be reviewed
"As independent institutions, the national statistical institutes play a central role in democracy. It is therefore important that compliance with the principles of the European Statistics Code of Practice is also regularly reviewed. Statistics Austria is fully committed to these principles. The peer review, which is taking place for the third time, can provide important recommendations for the further development of the national statistical institutes, but also for the national statistical system as a whole. The Corona crisis in particular has shown how important independent and high-quality data and statistics are," says Statistics Austria Director General Tobias Thomas.
Report on the implementation of the Code of Practice will be published in mid-July 2022
After the on-site assessment, the experts draw up a draft report on compliance with the European Code of Practice in Austria, in which concrete recommendations are made and possibilities for development are identified. Statistics Austria then has the opportunity to formulate a statement on this expert report. The publication of the final report of the Peer Review is planned for mid-July 2022.
