  • DIFFERENT PHASES OF CREATING AND USING THE EDITING STRATEGY

    3 15 September 2015 Pauli Ollila

    1) DESIGNING THE EDITING STRATEGY The phase includes a variety of different planning and decision actions for editing, ranging from the construction of the process flow to selecting some principles to carry out edit rules. 2) CREATING THE REALIZATION SYSTEM OF THE STRATEGY The phase includes the IT choices for carrying out the editing strategy, both containing solutions for different parts in the editing strategy and possibly decisions for interactions between different IT environments and data structures. In principle this phase could also include decisions about non-IT practices belonging to the strategy, e.g. paper questionnaire studies. There might be various ways to carry out the methods, but the corresponding IT solutions for the methods are denoted here as modules. 3) TESTING THE STRATEGY The phase includes operations in the realization (IT) system of the editing strategy with specific test data sets (unedited, edited), in practice mostly from earlier rounds of the production of statistics. The testing procedure may have a systematic structure, but known statistic-dependent problematic areas can also be studied. 4) APPLYING THE STRATEGY IN PRODUCTION The phase contains the implementation of the editing strategy with chosen methods and parameterization in the corresponding IT system with data set(s) to be edited in the production process of statistics. Note that editing in production can also happen in a collection phase, i.e. when we are acquiring the data gradually.

    The editing process “contains a number of activities or tasks that aim to assess the plausibility of the data, identify potential problems and perform certain selected actions that intend to remedy the identified problems”. The editing strategy covers in addition to the editing process also many other things connected to the operations dealing with the editing process in different contexts.

  • Generic E&I process from GSDEM

    5 15 September 2015 Pauli Ollila

  • Process step definitions in GSDEM

    -  The editing process can be structured by splitting it up into sub-processes, called process steps, and a process flow that describes the navigation among the process steps during execution.

    -  An operational data editing process usually contains a considerable number of functions with specified methods that are executed in an organised way. The function types are Review, Selection and Amendment. A function is an instance of one of the three function types that serves a specific purpose in the chain of activities that leads to the edited data.

    -  Data editing functions specify what action is to be performed in terms of its purpose, but not how it is performed. The latter is specified by the process method. For the purposes of production some computerized methods are parameterized in order to define the process exactly. Methods can be interactive as well.

    The connection between four phases of creating and using editing strategy and GSDEM is emphasized via terms process flow, process steps, functions, methods and parameterization.

    According  to  the  edi-ng  process  it   tells  what  needs  to  be  done  and  to   be  obtained  as  results.  

    Includes  user  ac-ons  within  the  IT   environment:  parameter  defini-ons,   interac-ve  opera-ons,  decisions,   possibly  prepara-ons  and  updates.    

    Provides  modules  to  carry  out  the  tasks   given  in  planning  with  chosen  methods.   Supported  by  a  metadata  system  for  user   defini-ons  and  process-­‐based  parameter   produc-on  with  metadata  for  monitoring.
