Although the work-load standards of 1990 might be considered as out-dated, it is within the Administration’s discretion to apply such a calculation method as long as its use cannot be considered as arbitrary or otherwise irregular. 35. (...) The Manual further provided that the selected assessment method “forms part of the evaluation criteria” and among the elements to be borne in mind by Hiring Managers in conducting assessment exercise is the applicable rating system. 42. (...) The Hiring Manager further testified that he based the evaluation method for the advertised posts on the one used when engaging in contractual work arrangements with UNOG.

This meeting will be organized as part of the Conference of European Statisticians’ work programme for 2022, within the context of the High-Level Group for the Modernisation of Official Statistics. 3. In particular, the expert meeting will explore the following themes: • Identifying new methods that can improve the quality and efficiency of editing and imputation; • Investigating statistical quality risks arising from using new methods and data sources, and ways to address them; • Developing approaches for standardizing and implementing statistical data editing functionalities; and • Facilitating the sharing of experiences, ideas and tools for modernizing statistical data editing and imputation processes. 4. (...) The participants at the previous meeting on statistical data editing in 2020 expressed their interest in examining the following topics in this meeting: • Machine Learning /Artificial Intelligence for editing and imputation; • Modernisation of data editing and statistical production; • Use of administrative data for editing and imputation; • Quality in the context of statistical data editing; • Imputation (for ‘Covid-19 mass nonresponse‘) and variance; • Use of Deep Learning on Big Data synchronized with editing and imputation; • Statistical data editing and pre-processing of new digital data for statistical purposes; • Infrastructure needed for open source statistical data editing packages; • Selection bias and statistical data editing; • Missing prices and outlying price data; and • New and emerging methods. 2 6.

FAO Statistics Division works to strengthen the statistical processes throughout the Organization by developing improved methods and their implementation in the corporate Statistical Working System. FAO Statistical Working System FAO Statistical Working System is a corporate platform used in FAO for the processing and storage of statistical datasets, providing the framework needed to use the same methods, standards, classifications and approaches within statistical processes. Within the FAO Statistical Working System, the methodological innovation work focuses on progressively integrates the corporate statistical processes with the aim to improve the quality of FAO statistical production, methods and outputs.

Further, given the difficulty of accurately measuring migration, data integration could include methods to reconcile different migration figures as derived from different sources, for example “triangulating” (assuring validity through the use of more than one method to collect data on the same topic) results from different data sources to develop estimates for “hard-to-count” migration populations, such as irregular migrants or emigrants. 3. (...) The Task Force will carry out the following activities: (a) Review of methods used or under study by countries to integrate administrative sources to measure migration, including a list of potential administrative sources; page 3 (b) Review of methods used or under study by countries to combine administrative and non-administrative data sources to measure migration, including statistical modeling; (c) Review of methods used or under study by countries to reconcile migration figures derived from different data sources for improving final migration estimates; (d) Development of guidelines, based on practical examples, on how data integration can be used to improve the measurement of immigration, emigration and net migration; (e) Development of guidelines on the production of metadata/documentation for integrated migration statistics; (f) Description of good practices for improving communication between statistical agencies and the actual producers of administrative data related to migration. (...) METHOD OF WORK 13. The Task Force will primarily work via email, wiki workspace, and telephone conferences.
