Research on edit and imputation methodology; the troughput programme

This research programme focuses on methodology for the statistical process between input (data gathering and storage) and output (estimation, analysis and publication). This “troughput process”consist of procedures for the detection of errors, correction of errors and imputation (filling in estimates) of missing values. These throughput procedures are also referred to as editing and imputation (E&I) procedures. The goal of our throughput  research programme is to improve the E&I procedures both in cost-effectiveness and in quality.
