Quality description

The following subsections detail our assessment of the quality of the survey.

We will be assessing the quality of the survey according to the five dimensions of quality specified in the European Statistical System. These are:

  • Relevance
  • Accuracy and reliability
  • Timeliness and punctuality
  • Accessibility and clarity
  • Coherence and comparability.

These dimensions, which are recommended for use in measuring survey quality in the National Statistician’s guidance, also map onto aspects of quality which must be assured according to section Q3 of the Code of Practice for Statistics. The following sections of this quality report therefore cover each of the dimensions in turn, exploring the quality characteristics of the Graduate Outcomes survey by utilising the relevant quality indicators and measures identified in the guidance.
