QUANTOS provides services in the field of metadata management. That refers to the design, development, application and assessment of the proper content, structure and designs neccesary to manage any type of metadata that describes statistical data, designs and processes.
In official statistics, metadata management processes are of vital importance since statistical metadata plays a key role in linking survey measurements and process quality improvement. On the one hand, metadata describe the quality of statistics. On the other hand, metadata are themselves a component of data quality, which improves the availability and accessibility of statistical data. A wide field of metadata management refers to the standardized metadata structures, known as Euro-SDMX Metadata Structure (ESMS), which are used by all EU Member States to describe the statistics released so that they are readable and precise.
