Methodology Research Vision 2020- 2025

Statistics Netherlands wishes to continue to play a leading role in the publication of trustworthy and comprehensive statistical information, responding to the needs of society, and also
continue to guarantee the high quality of this statistical information.

The research programme methodology has the aim for Statistics Netherlands to be recognised internationally as a gold standard for the manner in which official statistics are compiled: Testable, Reproducible, Ethical, and Efficient.

The operationalisation of these four desired characteristics of methods and ways of working requires research and development in a number of areas: the expertise themes described in this plan.
