A social protection scheme is a distinct body of rules, supported by one or more institutional units, governing the provision of social protection benefits and their financing.

Quality management
Quality assurance

The European system for integrated social protection statistics is an annual survey which is conducted in the framework of Regulation No 458/2007 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the European system for social protection statistics, Commission Regulation (EC) No 1322/2007 on appropriate formats for transmission, results to be transmitted and criteria for measuring quality and Commission Regulation (EC) No 10/2008 on definitions, detailed classifications and updating of the rules for dissemination.

Quality report is prepared.

Relevance
User needs

The main users of ESSPROS data are:

  • Institutional users as other activities of the Commission, other European institutions, national administrative institutions (mainly those responsible for monitoring the social protection) or other international organizations;
  • Eurostat, ministries and state agencies;
  • Research organizations and institutions;
  • End users - including the press - interested in receipts and expenditure of social protection in the EU.
User satisfaction

No survey is conducted for user satisfaction.

Completeness

ESSPROS encompasses interventions from public and private bodies intended to relieve households and individuals of the burden of a defined set of risks or needs, provided that there is neither a simultaneous reciprocal nor an individual arrangement involved.

Accuracy and reliability
Overall accuracy

As ESSPROS data are based on many administrative sources, the standard indicators for measuring accuracy are not directly applicable. Therefore, the accuracy is estimated by considering the non-sampling errors in the data sources.

Sampling error

ESSPROS is not a sample survey.

Non-sampling error

Limitations in the scope of and problems of measurement, evaluation of the method of estimation and revisions.

Timeliness and punctuality
Timeliness

According to the schedule for ESSPROS data provision, defined by Regulation 458/2007, data is provided with a margin of 18 months.

Punctuality

The target date for provision of data on the ESSPROS core system is determined by the European Parliament and Regulation (EO) No 458/2007 of the Council (appendix 1, items 1.3 and 2.3), according to which quantitative data at all schemes level and qualitative information for year N must be disseminated by Eurostat no later than 31 October of year N+2.

Coherence and comparability
Comparability - geographical

Social protection schemes differ greatly between different countries. There are great differences in the number and share of these schemes. In some countries the number of social protection schemes is very high while in others, usually these with small number of beneficiaries, the schemes are only partially covered by the data sources.

Comparability - over time

There are minor changes as regards the schemes, data sources, timeliness and scope of data in different countries which means that data from different years are comparable.

Coherence - cross domain

Not applicable.

Coherence - internal

As far as possible, there needs to be coherence between quantitative data and qualitative information. Where benefits are classified under a certain scheme, the description of these benefits should be found in the qualitative information and vice versa, unless the scheme described in the qualitative information has not yet entered into force (i.e. no benefits are supplied in the reference year) or has expired (i.e. the scheme is split into two different schemes, merged with another scheme or definitively abolished).

Coherence should be ensured as far as possible between the core system and the module on pension beneficiaries. If there are benefits classified under a particular pension item for a scheme, the number of beneficiaries should be found in the corresponding item in the pension beneficiaries module, and vice versa.

Cost and burden

Data is collected from administrative sources.

Data revision
Data revision - policy

Not applicable.

Data revision - practice

Data revision is possible due to different reasons ? for example change in the data sources used, change in the methods used for data estimation, due to adjustments in definitions used, etc.
