WP4 - Communication, dissemination and implementation


Work Package 4: Communication, dissemination and implementation

Communication activity is a key area in the work of ESSnet on quality of multisource statistics (KOMUSO). Special attention has been given to the involvement of non-participating NSIs and other stakeholders. Results of the ESSnet have been presented in several fora and disseminated here on the CROS portal. Stakeholders were invited to visit the website and were encouraged to give feedback on the work.

A workshop was organised by HCSO in April 2016 in Budapest to present and share knowledge and experiences about the quality aspects when using administrative sources in statistical production. The whole ESS.VIP Admin project was presented to the participants. First results and plans for ESSnet KOMUSO were presented and discussed, structured questions on statistical use of administrative data and its quality aspects were discussed in small groups. Results of other grants on (f. ex. Grants on "Improvement of the use of administrative sources (ESS.VIP ADMIN WP6 Pilot studies and applications", grants on "Use of administrative data sources, especially the IACS information to produce agricultural statistics" etc.)." were also presented and discussed in the workshop. Presentations and handouts are available from here.

The ESSNet KOMUSO informed the relevant ESS groups on its results. The following groups were informed:

We contacted the members of Data Integration Project (UNECE) and informed each other on the work carried out in these projects.

Results of the ESSNet KOMUSO were presented on several conferences. The table below lists the conferences we participated in with presentation.
