The Effectiveness of a Supranational Statistical Office: Pluses, Minuses, and Challenges Viewed from the Outside
Ivan P. Fellegi and Jacob Ryten
Abstract:Originally this article was written to mark the 50th anniversary of EUROSTAT. But for publication in the Journal of Official Statistics those passages that referred to the events related to the occasion have been either removed or modified so as to make the analysis and recommendation stand on their own. Furthermore, the article was written before allegations of poor administration and irregular financial practices on the part of EUROSTAT's senior management were made public. Since both versions deal with fundamental and structural issues, neither the original nor this revised version has any bearing on those allegations.
Keywords:Statistical system, supranational, priority setting, standards, dissemination, credibility
