Statistics Estonia is also guided by the requirements in § 7. “Principles and quality criteria of producing official statistics” of the Official Statistics Act.
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.

Users’ suggestions and information about taking these into account are available on the website of Statistics Estonia at http://www.stat.ee/statistikatood.
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 nationally comparable.
The data are comparable over time.
Differences in the methodology, especially in the data collection instrument, should be taken into account when comparing the statistics with data from other sources.
The methodology is being developed. The data are not comparable with those of earlier years.
Total population is 1,500 objects. All objects have been observed.
In 2018, additional data from web scraping (ticket sales websites Piletilevi and Piletimaailm, and cultural event promoting website kultuur.info) were used.
The sample was based on the enterprises and institutions which are related to the organisation of concerts according to the Estonian Classification of Economic Activities as follows: 90012 Production and presentation of live concerts, musical creation and other similar activities and 90021 Support activities to performing arts (from this section, the activities of producers and organisers of concerts). The sample was supplemented with units which had organised live music concerts during the reference period according to the Estonian Authors' Society or had received support from the Cultural Endowment of Estonia for the organisation of live music concerts over the past two years.
Wider use of Estonian cultural events calendar kultuur.info is in methodological development.
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 annual official statistics questionnaire “Music”.
The data are compared with the data of previous periods. All columns are checked to make sure that they have been completed as required.
In the case of missing or unreliable data, estimate imputation based on established regulations will be used.
Variables and statistical units which were not collected but which are necessary for producing the output are calculated. New variables are calculated by applying arithmetic conversion to already existing variables. This may be done repeatedly, the derived variable may, in turn, be based on previously derived new variables.
Microdata are aggregated to the level necessary for analysis. This includes aggregating the data according to the classification, and calculating various statistical measures, e.g. average, median, dispersion, etc.
The collected data are converted into statistical output. This includes calculating additional indicators.
To calculate the number of concert organizers and concerts, data from annual survey were compared with web scraping data. In 2018, attendance of concerts only includes tickets distributed through Piletilevi and Piletimaailm websites. Onward from 2019, only data collected by web scraping will be published.
