COMPILING AGENCY

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Agency that compiled the data being reported.

Context:
The dimension is needed as two agencies might be compiling the exact same data but using different sources or concepts (the latter would be partially captured by the dimensions). The provider ID is not sufficient, as one provider could disseminate the data compiled by different compiling agencies.
