ERROR LOCALISATION

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Error localisation is the (automatic) identification of the fields to impute in an edit-failing record. In most cases, an optimization algorithm is used to determine the minimal set of fields to impute so that the final (corrected) record will not fail edits.
