Definition
Commentary on the released data provided by the government authority.
Context
Under the Statistical Data Dissemination System of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), this entails the identification of any such commentary so as to maintain the objectivity or freedom from political judgement of the official statistical data being disseminated.
Remark
This concept was part of the SDMX Metadata Common Vocabulary (MCV), as published in SDMX Content-Oriented Guidelines (COG), annex 4 "Metadata Common Vocabulary", in 2009 (http://www.sdmx.org). In February 2016 the Metadata Common Vocabulary was replaced by the SDMX Glossary 2016.
