    Goals: To avoid errors in statistical services

    The Danish National Agency for IT and Learning discovered errors in their statistics on vocational education and training programmes. The errors could have many sources. The statistics are based on very complex IT data systems reporting i from around 100 schools in Denmark and are being enriched and prepared for statistics. Furthermore, the programming ensures that a lot of criteria are met. Finally, the coding programmes have been developed over many years with changing political perspectives.

    DAMVAD Analytics undertook a quality assurance raid during one intensive month in order to conclude whether or not the statistics were trustworthy. By mapping and analyzing the data flow and performing various procedures in MySQL and SAS, we tested the probability of errors and whether or not the coding ensured good data. The outcome of the project was an evaluation that the statistics concluded to be right and recommendations to raise data quality procedures.
