EDIT validation tool item 8 of the agenda Structural Business Statistics Working Group 14 April 2015, Luxembourg Arlind Dobërdolani
SBS data production process Starting with the data provided in 2015, Member States are fully in charge of the validation checks for levels 0 to 2 Eurostat is going to be strict regarding technical format Eurostat is working on automated process
EDIT tool EDIT is a generic tool for the data validation The tool implements the validation of the technical format as required by the EC Regulation 250/2009 EDIT is optimised for Mozilla Firefox - FF
EDIT input dataset technical format Only.csv files are accepted (only in FF) The datasets must have 24 columns Empty columns have to be sent The columns delimiter has to be semicolon " ; " EDIT has to be used with default settings
Use of EDIT by countries 28 countries used the EDIT for SBS BE BG CZ DK DE EE IE GR ES FR HR IT CY LV LT LU HU MT NL AT PL PT RO SI SK FI SE UK IS LI NO CH MK TR BA EDIT used Annexes I to IV 28 Annex VIII 22 has used EDIT and sent the EDIT reports has used EDIT and has not sent the EDIT reports has not used EDIT
EDIT tool improvements Completeness checks Only the completeness of NACE Rev.2 codes on Section and Division level is checked by now This check is very important for the "check sum"
EDIT tool improvements Checks of the sums It checks Section_Value = Sum(Division_Values) This check helps: to have more consistent datasets and to improve the data quality
EDIT tool improvements Dominance/Share larges unit and Share second largest unit checks The checks are implementing what is set forth in the EC Regulation 250/2009 "Dominance/Share larges unit" field has to be delivered for confidential data flagged B, C or F; "Share Second Largest Unit" field has to be delivered for confidential data flagged F.
EDIT tool improvements Update of NUTS 2013 codes Due to the changes in the NUTS 2013, new codes have been implemented for: Greece France Slovenia and United Kingdom
EDIT tool improvements Checks for 1D2 – Annual enterprise statistics and credit institutions classified in NACE Rev.2 64.19 The complete checks have been implemented for the new 1D2 dataset Can be accepted different units: KEUR, KNC, MEUR and MNC.
EDIT tool improvements Checks for 1G - insurance s. & pension f. The complete checks have been implemented for the new 1G dataset Can be accepted different units: KEUR, KNC, MEUR and MNC. For V15110 and V16130, are not requested NACE Rev. 2 codes: K65, K651, K6511, K6512, K652 and K6520
EDIT tool improvements Checks for 1E – Annual enterprise statistics for special aggregates of activities New special aggregates checks have been implemented for data validation and confidentiality
EDIT tool improvements Exchange Rate To calculate the following formula in 3D dataset (V12110/EXCHANGE_RT)/(V11110*1000) >= 0 and < 1 the Exchange Rate file has to be imported
EDIT tool improvements Inter series checks Confidentiality checks between series without any variables in common For example: (V18120 + V18150 + V18160) (2G) = 12110 (2A)
