Not relevant.

Collection of data, editing and estimations

Not relevant.

The statistics is checked up at aggregated level (country and county figures) by comparing with previous years registrations.

The Register for deliveries of carcasses obtains information about all delivered carcasses during the time period. Statistics Norway gets aggregated data files, where the information about deliveries of different kinds of livestock from each single holder during a month is collected in one record.

Seasonal adjustment

Not relevant

Confidentiality

Figures are not presented if there is a risk of identifying any unit.

Comparability over time and space

Before 1995, the statistics is based on forms from each slaughterhouse, where number and weight of carcasses of different kinds per month was registered. The location of the holdings with deliveries of carcasses was not registered on the forms, and it was not possible to give other figures than deliveries per month of the different carcasses. As from 1995, the statistics is based on use of register data, and figures can be given also for approved carcasses both in counties and municipalities.

Accuracy and reliability

Sources of error and uncertainty

The most important source of error is that the slaughterhouse may fill in incorrect information during the registration.
