paper 1 deroyon
Paper 1 – Deroyon
  • Ability to identify the missing businesses is crucial. How successful was the identification exercise?
  • The "micro-imputation" method used for the very smallest businesses is very basic. Is there any reason why the "mean imputation" method for the larger businesses is not extended to these businesses?
  • Why was average growth used rather than, for example, a "ratio of means" approach? This is widely used and often less biased.
  • Possible bias involved when using continuing businesses to model what is happening with dying businesses.
paper 2 pannekoek et al
Paper 2 – Pannekoek et al.
  • This looks like a very useful decomposition of the editing process. Could this be used more generally for any editing process , or is there some reason for concentrating on automatic editing?
  • Are the R packages used for a wide range of applications or specific to the methods carried out in the example?
  • Were there any measures of the quality impact of automatically correcting all failures? For example by manually checking a subsample.
paper 3 seri et al
Paper 3 – Seri et al.
  • Interesting that businesses with 3+ employees are used. Is the number 3 crucial or just convenient?
  • How successful is the mixture modelling used to identify unit errors? Is it better than deterministic thresholds?
  • The analysis of raw and edited data has led to changes to the survey process. Does this include questionnaire improvements (field testing)?
  • Selemix uses a slightly non-standard approach to selective editing which is useful where standard approach cannot be applied. How does it compare?
  • Useful to note that many similar challenges are being faced across NSIs.
  • The main thrust seems to be at improving the efficiency of the editing process to concentrate on where value can best be added. Measuring quality is key.
  • The new challenges of using administrative data are forcing us to question conventional methods and extend automatic approaches.
  • Important to apply the lessons learned from using administrative data and “back fit” to conventional data editing.
