When we have multiple
recipient-country/region in any activity, the standard seems quite clear:
All reported sectors from the same vocabulary MUST add up to 100.
I’ve always read the MUST as being a MUST!
However, I know that it might not always be possible to get to exactly 100% in some instances, particularly where there might be rounding (I think we found this with Canada data @YohannaLoucheur?)
I’m aware that tools such as DataWorkBench also allow a tolerance around this (correct @rolfkleef?) so it would be interesting to hear thoughts on whether:
a) we should consider a validation tolerance for the sum of multiple percentages (99-101%?)
b) and if so, how do we document that?
