Statistical Code of Practice

The Statistical Code of Practice sets out our standards for the collection, compilation and dissemination of monetary, financial and regulatory data. These standards are similar to the ones used by the UK Statistics Authority.

Data Quality Framework

Definitions of statistical data quality are maintained by international bodies such as the International Monetary Fund, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe and the European Statistical System. The Data Quality Framework (2014) describes how we interprets statistical data quality concepts in our published statistics.

Cost benefit analysis

In 2005-06 we looked at the balance of costs between reviewing existing statistical outputs regularly and assessing new statistics. We wanted to create more considered assessments but had to balance that with the reporter’s compliance costs. Our approach is explained in the Cost-benefit analysis of monetary and financial statistics (2006). The principle of assessing the balance between costs and benefit when we produce statistics still applies.
