Dernière mise à jour le : 12/09/2018

INSEE has another role :

  • development of the most effective statistical methods, whether for sample selection, processing survey non-responses or multimode data collection ;
  • quality assessment of statistical production ;
  • international cooperation: training and methodological support.

A great deal of work is devoted to the methodology used for household or population surveys, as well as business surveys. The development of a quality assurance framework, especially in the area of household surveys and administrative sources, is a priority for the Institute.
