ANNEX

‘ANNEX III

Micro-data files for the transmission of data listed in Section 2 of Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 692/2011

File structure and codification: practical arrangements

Each observed trip shall be an individual record in the transmitted micro-data file. This micro-data file shall be fully checked, edited and, where necessary, imputed, and shall follow the file structure and codification described in the table below. The Commission (Eurostat) will supply additional guidance on the format for transmission.

Data that does not respect the exchange standard set out in this Annex will be considered as not having been sent.

Header

The purpose of the header is to identify the transmitted data series. It shall consist of four fields:

Reference period shall consist of seven characters, the first four identifying the year and the last three the period within the year (A00).

Country code shall consist of two characters, containing the two-character country code of the Member State transmitting the data. Examples: BE (Belgium), BG (Bulgaria), …

Subject shall consist of the identifier of the dataset: nat_dem_microdata.

Currency identifies the currency in which expenditure is reported (EUR or NAC).
