The workshop—organised by Eurostat with the support of DevStat—will be held on the 4 and 5 June 2019 in Valencia, Spain. The ESS workshop will be an opportunity to showcase and exchange the results of the ESS Vision 2020 ADMIN project and to encourage technical discussions on how the ESS should continue to move towards an improved production system for social statistics using administrative data.

Sessions will centre around production infrastructure, administrative data collection, methodology and quality, both for census and for survey-related outputs.
