Our understanding on subprocess “4.4. Finalize collection” is that it is mainly represented by the data entry activity. If we are interpreting in a correct way, it seems to us that the wording that is being used is a little bit misleading (might be interpreted as the activity of sending the questionnaires to the units for their compilation), and we would suggest to use the wording “data entry”. In addition, as well known in the literature on data quality, data entry can be a source of processing errors, and it seems to us that would be more correct to place this activity under phase “5.Process”.

Istat also suggests to rename the sub-process 4.4Data memorisation” so as to align the denomination with its description.
