Final Workshop WP2, Vienna, 3 & 4 Dec. 2013

Achieving a Streamlined Framework for European Business Statistics

Final Workshop of the ESSnet on Consistency WP2


Starting from an external study commissioned by Eurostat, Work Package 2 (2011 Project on Target Population, Frames, Reference Period, Classifications and their Applications) of the ESSnet on Consistency identified major inconsistencies in present European Business Statistics, as far as covered by its given agenda.

Based on this evaluation, proposals on how to better harmonise future European Business Statistics were derived. These were presented and discussed with experts of statistical business registers, business statistics, and national accounts from the Member States and EFTA countries at the project's concluding workshop.

The event took place in Vienna, on the premises of Statistics Austria, on 3rd and 4th December, 2013.
