Statistical editing, or statistical data editing, is a significant and important part of a survey process. If the raw data has not been edited in any way, editing may require a great deal of time and resources. Typically, this is the case if a paper questionnaire has been used; all other modes give an opportunity to do some pre-editing, therefore the final editing ought to be easier.
