Law 4/1989, of 12 December on Statistics for the Autonomous Community of Andalusia establishes that the statistical activity will be carried out based on:
In this way, the Statistical Plan of Andalusia 2007-2012 passed by Law 4/2007, of 4 April, identifies the need to increase administrative register use to obtain statistical information as one of its specific instrumental objectives through the establishment ofcontinuous quality improvement systems for statistical classification, creation processes and administrative register management.
EUROPEAN STATISTICS CODE OF PRACTICE (Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament and the Council on the independence, integrity and accountability of statistical authorities of the member States and of the Community; Brussels 25-5-2005 COM (2005) 217 end) sets out in its ninth principle that the burden on respondents should not be excessive. It sets out as an indicator of the principle fulfilment the use of administrative sources whenever possible to avoid duplicating requests for information.
In this context, the first step for the statistical use of administrative registers is to identify existing registers and their main characteristics. To this end, the Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia has promoted the implementation of an Inventory of administrative information sources of Andalusia, established as an instrumental official activity. The Inventory seeks to contribute to the increased use of administrative sources for statistical and geographic information improving society’s coverage degree for statistical and cartographic information requirements with an effective use of resources which, in turn, generates high quality products.
This activity offers information on the features of administrative sources under the Andalusian Autonomous Administration jurisdiction, such as: designation, current rules, compulsory registration, data medium, main objective, body responsible for their management, department administering the source, reference population or events registered, territorial scope, maximum territorial breakdown, lapse between the event or administrative procedure and its registration, associated data and statistical and/or cartographic use of the source.
