Quality assurance of data collection

Last changed: 17 September 2021

To assure the quality of the data collected within DCF a number of measures are taken, concerning sampling design, sampling routines, quality checks and evaluation of eg accuracy. How you can find documentation of  quality assurance measurements for different samplings schemes are described here.

Sampling design and quality controls for different sampling schemes are described in the National program of DCF.

National program 2020-2021
Tables from the national plan 2020-2021
Sampling design is found in text box 4A in the National program.
In the end of Text box 4A, information on data storage and quality assurance is listed for all sampling schemes.

Quality checks that are made on data reigisterer in the database FD2 are found here (though in Swedish so far).
