About AIHW data quality statements

AIHW policy states Data Quality Statements (DQSs) are to be produced for collections for which AIHW acts as the data custodian. Once a DQS is created it will appear as a link to METeOR in the Additional Information tab of the publication webpage. DQSs should be prepared by data custodians and one should be created for each data source reported in a publication.

Each DQS should also be placed on METeOR, noting that the statement relates to the data itself, not to the data specifications. The development of AIHW data quality statements in METeOR improves access to them via a centralised registry. A hyperlink will then be placed on the relevant publication page under additional material on the AIHW web site linking the DQS in METeOR to the publication when it is released.

Please contact the Statistical Advisor at the AIHW for any further information on how to produce a DQS for your publication.

Data quality statements can be created and edited using the links below. Click on the link next to the name of your unit to either create a data quality statement or edit a data quality statement. Use the view and edit links to update the DQS with any change and to check that the final version of the DQS in METeOR contains all the changes agreed by the Author and Editor prior to the release of the publication.

You will only be granted access to the quality statements associated with publications in your unit. If you are not already logged into METeOR when you click on the links against your unit, you will be prompted to log in to METeOR using your METeOR username and password.
