STATE OF STATISTICAL DATA EDITING AND CURRENT RESEARCH PROBLEMS

William E. Winkler, Bureau of the Census

KEY WORDS: data editing, Fellegi-Holt methods

ABSTRACT

This paper provides background on Fellegi-Holt methods as they are implemented for discrete and continuous data. It describes several Fellegi-Holt systems that are currently in use throughout the world in different statistical agencies. Because all the systems have limitations, it delineates a few research problems that, if solved, would improve the use of the systems.
