Administrative data based statistics: the case of non-pension cash benefits (NPCB)


  • Paolo Consolini

    (Istat - Italy's National Statistical Institute)


This paper explores the possibility to collect the information on the non-pension cash benefits by using the administrative data sources. Firstly, we describe the framework of the Italian ITS on social protection and define the units of analysis. Afterwards, we review the Bodies holding sources of statistical information and assess the prominence of each data source in terms of the rate of NCPB expenditure coverage. A crucial point of this process is in combining the information from different sources in order to produce statistical data on NPCB expenditure and on the respective recipients. As an example, we analyse the exact matching between DM10 database and 770-tax register. Technical aspects are not taken into account because beyond the scope of this analysis.
