Statistical concept
Definition
The extent to which easily comprehensible metadata are available, where these metadata are necessary to give a full understanding of statistical data.
Context
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".
