Macro-integration techniques with applications to census tables and labour market statistics

Macro-integration is widely used for the reconciliation of macro figures, usually in the form of large multi-dimensional tabulations, obtained from different sources. Traditionally these techniques have been extensively applied in the area of macro-economics, especially in the compilation of the National Accounts. Methods for macro-integration have developed over the years and have become very versatile techniques for solving integration of data from different sources at a macro level. In this paper we propose applications of macro-integration techniques in other domains than the traditional macro-economic applications. In particular, we present two possible applications for macro-integration methods: reconciliation of tables of a virtual census and combining estimates of labour market variables.
