Statistics Estonia performs all statistical activities according to an international model (Generic Statistical Business Process Model – GSBPM). According to the GSBPM, the final phase of statistical activities is overall evaluation using information gathered in each phase or sub-process (this information includes, among other things, feedback from users, process metadata, system metrics and suggestions from employees). This information is used to prepare the evaluation report which outlines all the quality problems related to the specific statistical activity and serves as input for improvement actions.

DATA FROM OTHER STATISTICAL ACTIVITIES
Data from statistical activity 22303 „Foreign trade” are used.
Data are collected through eSTAT (the web channel for electronic data submission). eSTAT is also used to monitor the completion of questionnaires. The questionnaires have been designed for completion in eSTAT by the respondents themselves and they include instructions and controls. The questionnaires and information about data submission are available on Statistics Estonia’s website at http://www.stat.ee/andmete-esitamine (in Estonian). Data are collected with the statistical questionnaire „Teravili”.
Arithmetic and qualitative controls are used in the validation process, including comparison with other data.
The variables which were not collected directly but are required for output generation are calculated. In order to calculate new variables, mathematical expressions are applied to existing variables. The process may be repeated, i.e. a derived variable may be based on other derived new variables.
Microdata are aggregated before analysis. This covers data summarisation according to the classification and the calculation of various statistical indicators (e.g. mean). The indicators to be published are calculated on the basis of the collected data.
