To assure the quality of processes and products, Statistics Estonia applies the EFQM Excellence Model, EU Statistics Code of Practice and the ESS Quality Assurance Framework (QAF). Statistics Estonia is also guided by the requirements provided for 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 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 activities 20007 „Quarterly financial statistics of enterprises” and 22201 „Production indices” are used.
Data are collected through eSTAT (the web channel for electronic data submission) and from administrative data sources. 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 quarterly statistical questionnaire „Majandustegevus. Tööstus, energeetika ja veevarustus”.
Arithmetic and qualitative controls are used in the validation process, including comparison with the data of previous periods and other surveys.
The variables and statistical units 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.
