Back to STES Timeliness Framework
This page contains links to detailed documentation on improving timeliness or reducing costs in the production of short-term economic statistics by effectively combining technology and staff resources. The papers below provide detailed information on methods relevant to this topic which have been implemented within statistical organisations. Issues covered include:
• Creating specialised teams of staff on certain aspects of the statistical production process to work across several surveys in accordance with processing workflows to optimise use of staff resources
• Re-engineering the statistical production processes to ensure optimal interaction between staff and technology resources
The papers below focus primarily on the issue of effectively combining technology and staff resources. They may also contain information on other statistical processes defined in the STES Timeliness Framework .
