A survey quality profile consists of a collection of information about relevant quality aspects of a survey. This information can be of use to both data users and data producers, as well as other interested parties such as survey funders.

This presentation will discuss the merits of quality profiles and how data producers and data users can both benefit from them. Some observations will also be made regarding the processes of identifying the information to be included, producing the quality profile, and dissemination and quality improvement.
