Back to STES Timeliness Framework
This page contains links to detailed documentation on performing estimation based on lower response rates for short-term economic statistics which can enable improvements in timeliness. The papers below provide detailed information on methods relevant to this topic which have been implemented within statistical organisations. Issues covered include:
• Sophisticated estimation methods which enable similar quality estimates to be produced at lower response rates
• Suitability of estimates based on lower response rates for release at aggregate levels only
The papers below focus primarily on the issue of estimation based on lower response rates. They may also contain information on other statistical processes defined in the STES Timeliness Framework .
