The assessment is carried out on different levels:
- Comparability of the JODI data with other sources; monthly data from national and secondary sources is assessed.
- JODI data is also compared with annual data (when available) in order to check whether the levels and trends over the years can be confirmed.
- When no other sources are available for comparison with the JODI data, internal consistency and balance checks are carried out.
Examples of internal consistency checks: comparing the sum of all the reported products with reported figures for total products, or when both closing and stock changes data have been submitted, comparing the consistency of the reported changes with the calculated ones.
