  • Abstract
    Nowadays, the information technologies potential and vastness of available information (censuses, statistical frames) enable the development of procedures of standardisation and record linkage for its use in official statistics.
    In this article a process of both standardisation and optimisation of administrative records is presented in order to ultimately transform them in valuable statistical data. Its practical application is demonstrated with the aid of the statistics on disability and labor market of the National Statistics Office of Spain that are annually executed by the combination of administrative records on disability (State Database on Persons with Disabilities, SDPD) and already consolidated labor market statistics (Spanish Labour Force Survey and Spanish Structure of Earnings Survey).
