Macro integration - data reconciliation

Macro-economic statistics published by Statistics Netherlands must be consistent. The figure for GDP calculated according to the income approach, for example, must be the same as the figure calculated according to the production approach. To make macro-economic figures consistent, first of all large measurement errors are corrected, and then the remaining discrepancies are solved. The latter process is also called reconciliation. This report describes a number of mathematical reconciliation methods.
