CSIL supports EUROSTAT in its evaluation activities

September 2013, 

CSIL has recently supported Eurostat in carrying out the ex-post evaluation of the effectiveness of the Community Statistical Programme 2008-2012. Evaluation activities were carried out in close partnership with the B1 Unit "Quality; methodology and research" at Eurostat. In the framework of this evaluation, CSIL experts employed different and complementary information collection tools and methodologies, with an extensive use of information provided by Eurostat. The evaluation tools used to collect the evidence due to answer the evaluation questions included: documentary analysis of all existing documents related to the CSP 2008-2012; in depth interviews to representatives of National Statistical Institutes (NSIs), Directorates General of the European Commission, ESAC and directors of ECB and OECD; a focus group aimed at discussing the preliminary findings and orienting the production of final recommendation.
