Portuguese term or phrase: junto (in this sentence)
A uma recolha permanente JUNTO de cerca de 20 entidades diferentes produtoras de informação estatistica, junta-se um rigoroso controlo de qualidade.

Would 'combined' be a correct interpretation? Please translate the ENTIRE sentence so I can see how it's interpreted by others. Thanks.

Explanation:
This is obviously European. Usually, I would refrain from poking my nose, but there may be a shortage of people on duty. So, there I go

"Rigorous quality control procedures are applied together with a permanent collection effort involving about 20 different entities that produce statistics.

What the guy means is that they collect information from the 20 entities.

Last but not least, happy new year you all.


    Oh, God, thousands of bureaucratic texts where they use "junto a" where they should use "do"
