Methodology & data quality

The European Works Council database (EWCdb) comprises information on European works councils (EWCs), the founding agreements of EWCs and the companies they are established in. 

The database aims to present an exhaustive list of EWCs and EWC agreements. However, we are dependent on several sources to provide us with information. The database thus lacks information.

But how to assess the quality of the data in the database? For this, the ETUI prepared a guide presenting the users with an explanation of the ETUI's policies to prevent, assess and treat errors in the database.
