CBS case

“Facts that matter”

In a society where information is exploding, having free access to reliable and integral data is crucial. Statistics Netherlands (CBS) provides insight into social issues through reliable statistical information and data. By doing so, CBS feeds the social debate, policy development and decision making, thus contributing to prosperity, well-being and democracy.

Consistent estimation of census tables

Every ten years a census is taken all over the world.
In the Netherlands CBS takes care of this. The Netherlands is one of the few countries with a virtual census. We use available sources; these sources are not always complete, they do not cover all Dutch people. Missing data are estimated.

A major challenge is to estimate consistently. This is not obvious when the data in the tables comes from different sources.
Fortunately there are mathematical techniques for making consistent estimates.
