Quality assurance process
The informant: "District courts are supervised by regional courts, which check the statistics and make sure that they are correct. So, we have a control system in place. It is based on our Instruction on Data Recording and Statistical Services. It is even more strict with respect to prosecutors because there is one more level of control. They do it very diligently. It is somewhat looser when it comes to the courts because the hierarchy is not such. Regional courts control district courts, but the highest court keeps its own records."
- Over time
To include Antidiscrimination Act in the data collection, but at the same time, the informant indicated that there are other urgent priorities. There are no plans to improve the quality of the administrative data.
Relation with third parties
While the Czech Statistical Office publishes some of the statistics based on the data from the Ministry of Justice, the statistical potential of this administrative data source is used only very partially. There is much more data which remains unused.
