11. Quality management Top
11.1. Quality assurance

The quality of statistics in CYSTAT is managed in the framework of the European Statistics Code of Practice which sets the standards for developing, producing and disseminating European Statistics as well as the ESS Quality Assurance Framework (QAF). CYSTAT endorses the Quality Declaration of the European Statistical System. In addition, CYSTAT is guided by the requirements provided for in Article 12 of the Statistics Law No. 15(I) of 2000 as well as Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 223/2009 on European statistics, which sets out the quality criteria to be applied in the development, production and dissemination of European statistics.

11.2. Quality management - assessment

Certain procedures are implemented in order to monitor the quality of administrative data for births and deaths received from the Civil Registry and Migration Department (CRMD): an evaluation of the variables obtained takes place, outliers are detected and re-checked with the CRMD, duplicates are identified and deleted.

For survey results, in addition to the consistency and validation checks already implemented in the CAPI questionnaire, a recording system which is installed in the tablets used for the survey enables the assessment of the quality of the work conducted by interviewers. Also, indicators per inteviewer are calculated as an extra measure to monitor their work. Finally, complementary data sources are used to verify trends and indicators resulting from the data analysis.

13. Accuracy Top
13.1. Accuracy - overall
Please report on the reasons for any unreliability of the data on:
Population Live births Deaths Immigrants Emigrants Net migration
Since births and deaths are registered events which are almost 100% covered, any divergence between the estimated population and the actual population (in the mid-Census period) might be the result of the errors on the estimates of immigrants and emigrants. Such errors are explained in points 13.2 and 13.3 below. Not applicable Not applicable There is the possibility of coverage error as well as the under-representation of the full population of immigrants in the sample. There is the possibility of coverage error as well as the under-representation of the full population of emigrants in the sample. Not applicable
13.2. Sampling error
In case of survey as data source, please provide information on the part of the difference between a population value and an estimate thereof, derived from a random sample, which is due to the fact that only a subset of the population is enumerated.

13.3. Non-sampling error
In case of survey as data source, please provide information on the error in survey estimates which cannot be attributed to sampling fluctuations.

Population Live births Deaths Immigrants Emigrants
By using the Census of Population as a benchmark, annual population data are estimated using the natural increase and net migration figures. Births Register: Civil Registry and Migration Department Deaths Register: Civil Registry and Migration Department.

As from 2015, the data base at the Health Monitoring Unit of Cyprus has also been used as an additional source.

18.3. Data collection

Combination of use of adiministrative sources and surveys.

18.4. Data validation

On the data received from administrative sources (Births and Deaths), some data validation rules are performed with the use of SPSS in order to ensure that the results are correct and consistent. 

18.5. Data compilation

Data on births, deaths, immigrants and emigrants refer to the usually resident population of the Government controlled area of Cyprus only. The population in the Government controlled area of Cyprus does not include the military forces (and their families) residing in the two Sovereign Base Areas (SBAs) of Akrotiri and Dhekelia - it does include however the rest of the resident population in the two SBAs which do not belong to the military forces.

Turkish cypriots residing in the occupied area of Cyprus are not included in the figures of births, deaths, immigrants and emigrants.

Please refer to the Demographic Report for more information on the data compilation.
