Background and history (1)

  • Intrastatbegan operating 1 Jan 1993

  • most burdensome area of business statistics

  • in addition, perceived burden (by PSI’s) is an issue

  • many initiatives to deliver reform

  • achievements not sufficient

Nordicmeeting


16 9 2014 olli pekka penttil director of statistics co ordinator finnish customs

Background and history (2)

  • lack of consensual solution

  • conflicting priorities of Member States

  • need to unblock the situation

  • new element, what can it be?

  • the analogy to administrative data

  • double collection of data is an opportunity

  • EU legislation cannot force MS to reduce burden

Nordic meeting


16 9 2014 olli pekka penttil director of statistics co ordinator finnish customs

The proposal from 2012 – SIMSTAT

  • Reduce data collection requirements on the intra-EU imports (arrivals) side.

  • Enable Member States to design the data collection for the intra-EU imports according to their needs.

  • Create an additional data source by making the exchange of micro data for intra-EU exports (dispatches) mandatory.

  • Member States can chose whether to use the exchanged data. A country specific, gradual implementation of the SIMSTAT system would be possible.

Nordic meeting


16 9 2014 olli pekka penttil director of statistics co ordinator finnish customs

The Benefits

  • Potential for reduction in burden

  • Quality maintained through additional data source

  • Remove duplicate data collection

  • Developing generic solutions for microdata exchange which can be used to support the wider ESS Vision

Nordic meeting


16 9 2014 olli pekka penttil director of statistics co ordinator finnish customs

The Costs

  • Low cost solutions were made in the past

  • The sharing of data is a new element, which will have

    • set-up costs (funding from Eurostat: ESSnet, Grants)

    • maintenance costs

    • additional costs for Member States

    • additional burden on Intra-EU exporters

Nordic meeting


16 9 2014 olli pekka penttil director of statistics co ordinator finnish customs

The Risks

  • Will Member States realise this potential reduction?

  • Will Member States use this new data set?

  • will SIMSTAT deliver a burden reduction?

  • will the burden reduction be sufficient?

  • will the figures still be good enough quality and in time for National Accounts

  • will there be consensus of the Council and of the European Parliament (for example on FRIBS)?

Nordic meeting


16 9 2014 olli pekka penttil director of statistics co ordinator finnish customs

Background clear, but what to do?

  • Test the technical feasibility (ESSnet1+2)

  • Pursue methodological considerations(ESSnet1+2, WG Methodology)

  • Measure burden reduction potential (WG Methodology & Quality, SIMSTAT PTF and SG, BSDG)

  • Evaluate the impact on quality (ESSnet1+2, WG Methodology & Quality, SIMSTAT PTF, SG of ITGS, BSDG)

  • Draft legal text(WG Methodology, SG of ITGS, BSDG)

  • Seek consensus (SIMSTAT PTF, SG of ITGS, BSDG, ESSC)

    -> Target timetable: trials analysis ready on Q4/2015? Final decisions during 2016?

Nordic meeting


16 9 2014 olli pekka penttil director of statistics co ordinator finnish customs

Follow up the WP3 by Co-ordinator:

Rules for micro data validation and credibility checks and error correction done.

Testing of the new rules will be done during trial tests.

Nordic meeting


16 9 2014 olli pekka penttil director of statistics co ordinator finnish customs

WP4 tasks: Designing the production timetable for the trial tests adjusted to the production timetables of the MS’s and the current legal framework. The timetable should accommodate the impact of late responses and data corrections

4.1 Draft proposal for the production timetable with regard to the future “production test” context where data transmission network will be used. (final on 2nd meeting)

4.2.Proposal for the timing and practices of data extractions and data exchange in ESSnetcontext in order to simulate the future “production test” timetable (draft on February 2014, final on 3rd meeting)

4.3. Final proposal for the production timetable with regard to the future “production test” -context where data transmission network will be used including the impact of late response and data corrections (final on 4th meeting)

Nordic meeting


16 9 2014 olli pekka penttil director of statistics co ordinator finnish customs

Follow up the WP4 by Co-ordinator:

4 delivery dates during the month will be used to transfer micro data between the sending MS to the HUB for onward transfer to the receiving MS. The deadline for all MSs is t+30.

The delivery of all monthly 2013(?) and 2014 data by the Member States to the HUB should be transferred either before the start of the trial or the data could be staggered during the trial test.

The trial test expects participating Member States to transfer 2014 and 2015 Intrastat data according to the agreed timetable and file specification (DocMet400 SIMSTAT).

Nordic meeting

5.2 Proposal for the common practices to be applied for the data compilation in the future “production testing” environment. (final on 4thmeeting)

Nordic meeting


16 9 2014 olli pekka penttil director of statistics co ordinator finnish customs

Follow up the WP5 by Co-ordinator:

National test databases done for sending and receiving of micro data files

Merging received other MSs Intra-EU exports and national Intra-EU imports data

Nordic meeting


16 9 2014 olli pekka penttil director of statistics co ordinator finnish customs

WP6 tasks: Elaborating and implementing the quality evaluation of the test results

6.1 Proposal for an analysis plan to evaluate the quality of the statistics to be produced during the ESSnetwork. The plan should include both the production of short-term estimates and the production of detailed data. (draft on February-March 2014, final on 3rd meeting)

6.2 Compilation and quality evaluation of statistics using the data exchanged during the ESSnet. Each participating MS should compile and analyze the data concerning their own economy obtained from other Member States. (reports August 2014, final on 4th meeting)

6.3 Summary report on the results of the data analyses performed by all participating MS’s. (final on 4th meeting)

Nordic meeting


16 9 2014 olli pekka penttil director of statistics co ordinator finnish customs

Follow up the WP6 by Co-ordinator:

Analysis plan has over 10 Excel spreadsheets. Only 10 MSs had time to do analysis during the summer, first time is the most burdensome.

Summary report, first remark:

  • micro data from France and Italy with collected “ID of partner trader” has good quality.

  • other MSs has to simulate “ID of partner trader”, only CZ and GB successfully.

    Analysis plan for trial tests: process and product

Nordic meeting


16 9 2014 olli pekka penttil director of statistics co ordinator finnish customs

Nextsteps, the outline:

  • The SIMSTAT project will prepare a report demonstrating the outcomes of the trial tests in 2015.

  • The report will be presented to the ESSC in May 2016 for taking a decision on the eventual implementation of SIMSTAT.

  • FRIBS will provide the legal basis for SIMSTAT if the ESSC decides to introduce a mandatory micro-data exchange in the area of intra-EU trade statistics.
