Seventh Regional Workshop on Statistical Quality Management and Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics: National Quality Assurance Frameworks for National Accounts

[27 -28 November 2014, New Delhi, India]

The Seventh Regional Workshop on Statistical Quality Management and Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics will be conducted by the Statistical Institute for Asia and the Pacific (SIAP) on 27 and 28 November 2014 in New Delhi, in collaboration with Eurostat and Central Statistics Office (CSO) of India. With the theme “National Quality Assurance Frameworks for National Accounts”, the seventh workshop continues the discussions on national quality assurance frameworks (NQAFs) started at the fifth version of this series of workshops. The workshop will focus on implementation of NQAF in the process of producing national accounts – one of the major statistical processes undertaken by national statistical offices which involve multiple stakeholders.

The workshop will be held back-to-back with the EU-India seminar on quality matters in national accounts, which will take place on 25 and 26 November 2014 in New Delhi. The workshop is designed to build on the discussions and conclusions made during the EU-India seminar and explore potentials for immediate actions required to apply an internationally agreed quality framework (NQAF) to fill in existing gaps in assuring quality on production, dissemination and use of national accounts statistics.
