EDIT is a generic editing system developed by Eurostat for use by the European Statistical System (see Eurostat EDIT 2012 presentation).
It allows importing data, perform a set of data editing (including some outlier detection and deterministic imputation) operations and export resulting data and reports (see EDIT User Manual).
It works with aggregate and micro-data and does intra- and inter-record checks and various data set operations (copy, merge, append, etc.).
It can use other data sets as a reference (see EDIT Scripting Language).
