Standard errors have been estimated using a simple random sample assumption. Standard errors taking into account the complex sample design may be higher. The extent of the estimation error of the standard error can be assessed by comparing the standard errors released for selected indictors in Annex 3 of EAG 2021, that take into account complex survey design, with the respective standard errors released on OECD.stat computed under the simple random sample assumption
