What is Harmonisation?

Harmonisation is key in maximising the usefulness of data collected and statistics produced. Harmonisation is about ensuring commonality in the use of definitions, survey questions, administrative data and in the presentation of outputs across the Government Statistical Service (GSS).

Ensuring comparability across the GSS is important as it maximises the power of data and analyses without compromising quality.

We can support you in developing and implementing harmonised principles as well as offering a consultancy service where we can collaborate closely with you to ensure harmonisation is adhered to.
