This page contains links to detailed documentation on methods used to produce preliminary estimates from sub-samples for short-term economic statistics, which have been implemented within statistical organisations. The papers below provide detailed information on methods relevant to this topic. This includes the refinement of estimation methodologies to minimise revisions between preliminary estimates from sub-samples and final estimates from the full sample.
