Register-based statistics in the Nordic countries, review of best practices

In recent years, an increasing number of countries in the region of United Nations Economic Commission for Europe are considering the possibility of producing statistics based on administrative registers. Therefore, the National Statistical Institutes of the Nordic countries decided to share their experience and knowledge with the international statistical community, by producing comprehensive documentation of their best practices. The objective is to provide an understanding of what register-based statistics are, covering also the necessary technical and administrative capacity, and the possible applications of these methods to produce official statistics. The emphasis of the publication is on the use of administrative registers to produce demographic and social statistics.
