ANALYTICAL UNIT - EUROSTAT

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Analytical units represent real or artificially constructed units, for which statistics are compiled.

Context:
Analytical units are created by statisticians, often by splitting or combining observation units with the help of estimation and imputation in order to compile more detailed and more homogeneous statistics than is possible using data on observation units. (ISIC Rev. 3, para. 63)

Analytical units can correspond, for example, to enterprises, local units, kind-of-activity units (KAU), local kind-of-activity units (local KAU) as well as to units of homogeneous production (UHP) and local units of homogeneous production (local UHP).
