It does this by setting out the standards and recommendations for compiling short-term statistics and accompanying metadata, elaborating the methodological descriptions and the use of individual short-term statistics, explaining the statistical and analytical properties of short-term statistics and how they relate to an integrated set of quarterly national accounts and component data. It is targeted at compilers and users of short-term statistics in national statistics offices and national statistical systems, regional and international organizations and other relevant organizations, including private sector organizations. 1.
