Scottish Social Services Workforce Data
Publication of technical report on the quality assurance of administrative data (QAAD)
We are pleased to announce the publication of the technical report on the quality assurance of data used in the SSSC’s Official and National Statistics workforce data publications (available here).
This report was produced in response to the UK Statistics Authority's (UKSA) Regulatory Standard for the Quality Assurance of Administrative Data (QAAD) issued in January 2015. The Standard recognises the increasing role that administrative data is playing in the production of Official Statistics and sets out what the Authority expects producers of Official Statistics to do to assure themselves of the quality of this data. Full details of the Standard are available at: https://www.statisticsauthority.gov.uk/monitoring-and-assessment/monitoring/administrative-data-and-official-statistics/
