The ESSnet on quality of multisource statistics (KOMUSO) is one of the instruments implementing the ESS.VIP ADMIN (Administrative data sources). It has to fulfil the following objectives within the four year period (2015-2019):
This report presents the results from the first work package within the ESSnet titled Quality of multisource statistics (also known as ESSnet KOMUSO applying an imperfect acronym). The ESSnet is organised within ESS.VIP.ADMIN and sees participation from Denmark, Norway, Netherlands, Hungary, Austria, Ireland, Lithuania, and Italy.

Administrative data are used more and more in official statistics as a replacement for survey data.
[no-lexicon]When data sets are linked at individual level, for instance survey data with administrative data, often no unique linkage keys are available. In that case, probabilistic linkage may be used. With probabilistic linkage, linkage errors will occur. These errors may have impact on subsequent statistical analysis.
