Positional Accuracy At a data-point level, there might be comments that either add a caveat or further explain the data-point. The metadata presented was harvested from about 15 years of institutional memory, not all of which was external. Several thousand external metadata have been attached to data, along with over 50 000 quality-control internal metadata. Given the substantial nature of this modification, it is possible that some of the metadata are not correctly categorized. At the database level, no formal quality assessment has been conducted. Please refer to http://www.fao.org/nr/water/aquastat/metadata/index.stm for more information.
Logical Consistency Comparability - geographical Given the number of countries for which AQUASTAT reports information as well as the heterogeneity), data is sometimes not highly comparable. AQUASTAT does attempt to maximize comparability through rigorous quality assurance exercises, for example, by applying a common set of rules with which to evaluate transboundary water resources. Comparability - over time Time series, unless otherwise noted are comparable across time.
Completeness Release calendar policy Data is not released on a schedule, but updated continuously based on new data availability. Release calendar access N/A User access Access to AQUASTAT data is provided to external users through the AQUASTAT webpage, and through the websites of pre-selected partners that provide AQUASTAT data.
Process Step Unless otherwise indicated, data come from government representatives and/or publications from within each respective country. Data not generated by a country is displayed with an appropriate qualifier. Frequency of data collection Continuous Data collection methods Most data is obtained by the use of the AQUASTAT questionnaire. This questionnaire is either forwarded to official government offices, or filled in by a recruited national expert (as monetary resources allow).
