EDITING RATIONALITY

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
An editing process that focuses on improving the incoming data quality and hence the overall quality of the survey data. This may include moving most of the editing as close as possible to the collection of data, limiting manual follow-up to those flagged records with the heaviest potential impact on estimates, and applying a total quality management approach to data editing.
