Data set uncertainty

Monitoring data are not evenly spread across Europe, and there is considerable variation between countries in the number of monitoring sites reported and in the number of substances measured. The results are dominated by countries with the highest numbers of monitoring sites and substances reported, which is addressed using a weighting factor. However, a minimum number of monitoring sites and substances should be reported to achieve a representative overview of pesticide concentration in European waters.

    PT: In order to establish a minimum number of monitoring sites and pesticides it must be taking into acount:

    - the area of Member State or the area of water bodies in each country;

    - the pesticides allow and used in each Member State.
