Item description for Data and Metadata Reporting and Presentation Handbook 2007 by OECD Publishing...
The OECD Data and Metadata Reporting and Presentation Handbook contains guidelines and recommended best practice for the presentation of statistical data and metadata disseminated by national agencies and international organisations in various dissemination media. The Handbook brings together in one publication relevant presentation guidelines embodied in existing international statistical standards where they exist. The Handbook also presents for the first time a standard set of terminologies and guidelines for the presentation of growth rates, indices and seasonally adjusted data developed by the OECD Short-term Economic Statistics Working Party. The need for a comprehensive data and metadata presentation Handbook comes from the imperatives to improve the quality of statistics presented to users at both the national and international levels, in particular, with respect to interpretability and coherence (within datasets, across datasets, over time and between countries) and the need to minimise the reporting burden of national agencies in their provision of data and metadata to international organisations. The Handbook also contains recommendations on a small number of key data presentation areas that can also have a significant impact on data interpretability and where different approaches currently used by national and international agencies complicate the co-ordination of data collection by different organisations and comparisons of national data, etc. Such presentation practices involve: data revision; series breaks; presentation of sampling and non-sampling errors; practices for re-basing indices; citation practices; availability and presentation of metadata; presentation of administrative data.
