CONCEPTS AND DEFINITIONS
Eurostat's Concepts and Definitions Database
Extent to which easily comprehensible metadata are available (for the user), where these metadata are necessary to give a full understanding of statistical data.
Clarity is sometimes referred to as "interpretability". It refers to the data information environment: whether data are accompanied by appropriate metadata, including information on their quality, and the extent to which additional assistance is provided to users by data providers.
In the European Statistics Code of Practice, clarity is strictly associated to accessibility to form one single quality criteria: "accessibility and clarity".
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.
