Production of Compound Feed

The overall reliability is good. The statistics cover the production of compound feed by the Danish agribusiness companies alone. It means that directly imported compound feed and feed produced by farmers are not included in the statistics. The results are therefore not fully true for the overall production of compound feed in Denmark. It will be higher than in this statistics.

Overall accuracy

The overall accuracy is considered to be high, because it a census. It alone covers the production of compound feed produced by Danish agribusiness companies and not directly imported compound feed or compound feed produced by farmers. The results are therefore not fully true for the overall production of compound feed in Denmark. It will be higher than in this statistics.

Sampling error

Not applicable.

Non-sampling error

The statistics covers the production of compound feed at the agribusiness companies but not directly imported compound feed or compound feed produced by farmers at their farms. The results are therefore not fully true for the overall production of compound feed in Denmark. The production of compound feed produced by agribusiness companies are covered very well.

Quality management

Statistics Denmark follows the recommendations on organisation and management of quality given in the Code of Practice for European Statistics (CoP) and the implementation guidelines given in the Quality Assurance Framework of the European Statistical System (QAF). A Working Group on Quality and a central quality assurance function have been established to continuously carry through control of products and processes.

Quality assurance

Statistics Denmark follows the principles in the Code of Practice for European Statistics (CoP) and uses the Quality Assurance Framework of the European Statistical System (QAF) for the implementation of the principles. This involves continuous decentralized and central control of products and processes based on documentation following international standards. The central quality assurance function reports to the Working Group on Quality. Reports include suggestions for improvement that are assessed, decided and subsequently implemented.

Quality assessment

The overall accuracy is described as good, as in the case of a census. The statistics only covers the production of compound feed by agribusiness companies and do not cover directly imported compound feed or compound feed produced by farmers. The results are therefore not fully true for the overall Danish production of compound feed.

Data revision - policy

Statistics Denmark revises published figures in accordance with the Revision Policy for Statistics Denmark. The common procedures and principles of the Revision Policy are for some statistics supplemented by a specific revision practice.

Data revision practice

Only final statistics are compiled.
