A quality report sent to Eurostat
To assure the quality of processes and products, Statistics Estonia applies the EFQM Excellence Model, the European Statistics Code of Practice and the Quality Assurance Framework of the European Statistical System (ESS QAF).

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 can take many forms, including 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.

Since 1996, Statistics Estonia has conducted reputation and user satisfaction surveys. All results are available on the website of Statistics Estonia in the section User surveys.
In compliance with the rules (regulations)
The data are comparable with the data of other European Union (EU) countries, because a common methodology is used for data collection and release. All EU countries produce PRODCOM statistics, which is the system for the collection and dissemination of statistics of industrial goods based on the PRODCOM List (8-digit codes). In Estonia, the List of Estonian Products (TTL) is used, which is based on the PRODCOM List and has 11-digit codes, with Estonian codes added according to the interest of users (oil shale).
Eurostat database includes sold production volume and value and total production volume. Statistics Estonia’s database includes only sold production volume and value; total production is not published.
The data are comparable since 2000.
The data for 2000–2007 have been recalculated according to the new version of the Statistical Classification of Economic Activities NACE Rev. 2 (Estonian Classification of Economic Activities 2008 (EMTAK 2008)).
Due to changes resulting from the revision of the international product classification of the Harmonized System (HS) every five years, there are significant changes also in the Combined Nomenclature (CN) and PRODCOM List. The classification PRODCOM List is updated each year, and accordingly also the List of Estonian Products (TTL). Due to annual changes and updates, the time series are not comparable for all codes.
The data are comparable with: 1) the data for turnover of industrial production collected with the annual EKOMAR questionnaire (SBS, structural business statistics); 2) data collected for product categories oil shale, peat and wood processing products using the short-term business statistics (STS) questionnaires (industry (monthly), energy and fuel); 3) the data of total exports by enterprise and country collected with the foreign trade in goods monthly questionnaire. To ensure data accuracy, comparability checks are run against SBS and STS data.
The data revision policy and notification of corrections are described in the section Principles of dissemination of official statistics of the website of Statistics Estonia.
The published data may be revised if the methodology is modified, errors are discovered, new or better data become available.
The population is 2,000 statistical units. Census is used.
DATA FROM OTHER STATISTICAL ACTIVITIES
Data are collected and the submission of questionnaires is monitored through eSTAT (the web channel for electronic data submission). The questionnaires have been designed for independent completion in eSTAT and include instructions and controls. The questionnaires and information about data submission are available on the website of Statistics Estonia in the section Questionnaires.
Data are collected with the official statistics annual questionnaire “Manufactured goods”
The validation process consists of arithmetic and quality checks, incl. comparison with other data. Before data dissemination their internal coherence is checked.
Data is collected according to the list of industrial products based on the international classification List of Products of the European Community (Prodcom list). In the case of missing or unreliable data, imputation is used, for example by using administrative sources.
