Issues for further discussion and
feedback
• Economic Census- still done ? But not very
practical given the cost and updating
frequency.
• Feedback from surveys to supplement
register - more about updating
characteristics.
• Special register updating surveys.
Issues for further discussion and
feedback cont.
• Identifying local units - not often possible from
administrative data?
• Linking to associate registers ?
• Developed country focus – need some
examples of practice in developing world
Further discussion: new sources

Payroll systems
