Current round (2021-2023) - Quality

Peer reviews: Current round 2021-2023

Icon

Peer reviews form part of the European Statistical System (ESS) strategy to monitor the implementation of the Code of Practice. Their objective is to review the compliance/alignment of the ESS with the Code of Practice and to help the statistical authorities making up the ESS to further improve and develop the national statistical systems. 

A first round of peer reviews was carried out in 2006-2008 and a second round 2013-2015. The third round of peer reviews is being prepared and takes place in the period  2021-2023. The three rounds of peer reviews cover all the Member States of the EU and EFTA as well as Eurostat.

Participation of 'Other National Authorities'

The  participation  of 'Other National Authorities' developing, producing and disseminating European statistics (ONA) in  the  peer  reviews  has  been  considered  extremely  beneficial.  On  the one  hand,  it  helps  forging  a  closer  cooperation  within  the  NSSs  and on  the  other  hand,  it  helps raise the participating ONAs’ awareness of the Code of Practice and of the ONAs’ role in the production of European Statistics.

Please, consult the list of the ONAs [last update: May 2022] taking part in the third round of peer reviews 2021-2023 and a summary analysis of how they have been selected.
