As to the Confidence in Statistics
It will be discussed if the confidence in the results of the production of economic and social data will be justified. Probability based conclusions are possible concerning the sampling error. In order to quantify the non-sampling error an accuracy check is necessary which causes practical problems. Therefore special methods are applied to reduce the errors in surveys before the results are published. The confidence in statistics on this level depends on the collaboration of the official statistics with the applied statistical science.
