1.2 ONGOING WORK

 

4.1 Metadata (UN Statistics Division)

Sources and Definitions

 • Continues to develop comprehensive standardized metadata on sources and definitions for the Millennium Development Goals Indicators database, to provide user-friendly public and agency access to authoritative metadata on sources and definitions for international statistics, available at: http://mdgs.un.org

• UNSD is finalizing the second edition of the Handbook on MDG Indicators, in both printed version and electronic version, in a wiki-type application. (See: http://mdgs.un.org).


4.1 Metadata (UNECE STAT)

Description and objectives

 • A Steering Group on statistical metadata is developing a set of standards and good practices in the form of a Common Metadata Framework. The efficient management and use of statistical metadata – the information that describes and defines statistical data – is recognised as an important topic by the CES. As well as organising an expert group meeting in spring 2013, the main tasks will be to further enhance the documentation of metadata standards and good practices. The Common Metadata Framework is a living reference tool, mostly published only in electronic format, so that it can be rapidly updated to reflect new ideas and technologies. It includes the Generic Statistical Business Process Model, an important tool for standardisation and benchmarking of statistical production that has rapidly become a global standard, and has been adopted by the major partners of UNECE.


4.1 Metadata (World Bank)

DDI

 • Together with the International Household Survey Network (IHSN), the World Bank is advocating and supporting the use of the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) metadata specification (DDI Codebook) for the documentation and dissemination of microdata. In 2012, the data Group supported the development/upgrade of DDI-compliant software applications, including a DDI metadata editor and an open-source survey cataloguing tool (all available at www.ihsn.org). The software has been translated into French and Russian. These applications and related guidelines will be further developed in 2013.

4.3.3 Household surveys (ECB)

Ongoing work:

• Publication of the results of the first wave of the Eurosystem’s survey on household finance and consumption conducted in 15 euro area countries. This survey provides micro-level data to policy-makers and researchers on households’ (financial and real) assets and debts, alongside complementary information on income, consumption, employment, pension entitlements, savings and inheritances.


4.3.3 Household surveys (UNICEF - CEE CIS)

Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey
 Ongoing methodological work (summary description)

 • The Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) is a household survey programme developed by UNICEF to assist countries in filling data gaps for monitoring the situation of children and women. It is capable of producing statistically sound, internationally comparable estimates of these indicators. The MICS was originally developed in response to the World Summit for Children to measure progress towards an internationally agreed set of mid-decade goals. The first round of MICS was conducted around 1995 in more than 60 countries. A second round of surveys was conducted in 2000 (around 65 surveys), and resulted in an increasing wealth of data to monitor the situation of children and women. For the first time it was possible to monitor trends in many indicators and set baselines for other indicators.

• The third round of MICS, which was carried out in over 50 countries, including 13 countries in CEE/CIS Region in 2005-06, has been an important data source for monitoring the Millennium Development Goals with 21 MDG indicators collected through MICS3 (particularly indicators related to health, education and mortality). MICS3 was also a monitoring tool for other international goals including the World Fit for Children, the UNGASS targets on HIV/AIDS and the Abuja targets for malaria.

• The results of the fourth round of MICS (2009-2012) are already available for many countries, including Serbia and Kazakhstan in CEE/CIS. 11 MICS4 surveys have been conducted in 8 countries of the region (Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kazakhstan, Republic of Moldova, Serbia, Turkmenistan and Ukraine). 3 countries (Serbia, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Bosnia and Herzegovina) have also conducted additional MICS surveys in a sample of Roma settlements. As in previous rounds, the MICS4 questionnaire was developed through consultations with relevant experts from UN organizations, inter-agency monitoring groups and the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) Programme. The MICS4 questionnaire includes some new topics such as tobacco and alcohol use, access to media and technology, and life satisfaction.

• Additional information can be obtained from www.childinfo.org.

Priority objective and new activities for 2013

• UNICEF will continue supporting MICS4 countries in finalisation of the reports and archiving while starting the fifth round of MICS5 in some other countries. Montenegro and Kosovo (UNSCR 1244) have already started planning MICS5. Some of the main new features of MICS5 include an enhanced child labour module, water quality testing and questionnaire for individual men.

 

 

 


4.3.3 Household surveys (UNODC)

Crime Victim Surveys (CVS)
Ongoing methodological work and priority objective of the methodological work:
New activities to be undertaken in the next year:

4.3.3 Household surveys (WHO (Headquarters))

4.3.3 Household surveys (World Bank)

International Household Survey Network (IHSN and Acceleted Dat Program (ADP))

 • The World Bank participates in the governing body of the International Household Survey Network (IHSN), established in September 2004 (with various UN agencies, regional development banks, PARIS21, and other bilateral and multilateral partners), and coordinates the IHSN secretariat. (http://www.ihsn.org/) IHSN advocates better survey planning, promotes harmonization and development of data collection instruments, provides survey data dissemination tools and guidelines, and maintains a central survey and census catalogue. In 2012, the IHSN launched a new survey catalog. The catalog cover all low and middle-income countries.

 • In 2013, the World Bank and IHSN will pursue the development of software and guidelines related to the documentation, anonymization, cataloguing, dissemination and preservation of microdata.

The World Bank, in partnership with PARIS21, is providing training and technical support to statistical agencies and other national and regional data producers and curators on the use of the DDI standard and IHSN microdata management tools, under the Accelerated Data Program (ADP; see www.adp.ihsn.org). In 2012, this technical support program was initiated in Belarus, Russia, and Tajikistan. A pool of experts was also trained in Moldova. In 2013, this program is expected to be expanded to other countries in the region.

Living Standards Measurement Survey

 • Living Standards Measurement Survey Database contains all information on LSMS surveys that have been carried out. Documentation, questionnaires, manuals and other basic information can be downloaded from the site. The actual data can either be downloaded directly from the site (where countries have given permission) or may be requested from the database manager. Each survey data set contains constructed welfare measures that can be used for poverty analysis. To increase the ease of use and accessibility of the LSMS data sets two new tools are being constructed. The first is a searchable metadata file that allows researchers and analysts to identify those surveys that meet their research needs. A further effort to expand the use of the LSMS data sets is an interactive multi-survey data base that allows for on-the-fly tables and other analyses of the data for those who do not have the skills or time to analyze full household surveys.

 • The World Bank continues to provide assistance in planning, designing, implementing and analyzing the Living Standard Measurement Study (LSMS) surveys. The LSMS surveys represent one piece of larger, integrated efforts to improve the overall statistical system of each country by providing quality household level data.

• The WB ISTAT and the PRSP unit have supported efforts to determine the feasibility of using the HBS to measure welfare in future years.

• Regional work is being carried out in analyzing welfare data and how LSMS and HBS surveys are similar and dissimilar and the implications this has for welfare analysis over time.

• The LSMS group has developed a program of research investigating methodological issues related to the measurement of key concepts, how to improve data quality and ways in which LSMS survey data can be linked to other data bases. In the region, steps have been taken in designing experiments on the measurement of consumption.

• Assistance in planning, designing, implementing and analyzing LSMS surveys is provided by staff in DECRG-Poverty Group. Assistance includes technical advice on all stages of survey work, from deciding on the need for an LSMS survey, how best to design and implement such a survey, to how the resulting data can be analyzed. The goal is to foster increased use of household data as a basis for policy decision-making. The LSMS is working to develop new methods to monitor progress in raising levels of living, to identify the consequences for households of past and proposed government policies, and to improve communications between survey statisticians, analysts, and policy makers. A variety of printed and electronic materials are also available to survey planners and analysts. Several of these are: i) the book on Designing Household Survey Questionnaires for Developing Countries: Lessons from Fifteen years of the LSMS Surveys, that link the policy questions to be answered to the actual data that must be collected; ii) a Manual for Planning and Implementing LSMS Surveys, that covers all phases of an LSMS survey, from budgeting, to sampling, field work and data management and analysis; iii) examples of questionnaires, manuals and other field work material from all countries where LSMS surveys have been done; iv) case studies on how to increase the analytic capacity in country; v) databases from more than 88 LSMS surveys.

• Formal training courses on survey design and implementation along with hands-on-training are provided, both within and outside the Bank.
New techniques in small area estimation for poverty mapping are being developed that link census and household survey data. Training in these techniques as well as technical assistance in their implementation is also provided by DECRG-PO.

• The Living Standards Measurement Study (LSMS) web site provides access to documentation and data from LSMS surveys done in the region, including Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyz Republic, Romania, Russia, Serbia, and Tajikistan. For more information, visit the LSMS site.

4.5 Dissemination, data warehousing (ILO)

Dissemination

• The Department of Statistics website including the databases and dissemination applications have been reviewed and restructured in 2011 in accordance with the anticipated changes in data collection methods. The new relational database, named ILOSTAT (www.ilo.org/ilostat), is interactive, user-friendly and offers up-to-date information on decent work statistics. It was launched publicly in December 2012, and includes yearly data for 2009 and 2010.  Historical data and metadata are still available on the ILO’s previous statistical Website LABORSTA (http://laborsta.ilo.org) and gradually will be migrated into ILOSTAT during first quarter 2013.  ILOSTAT gives users access to a broad range of data and makes it possible to view and download information free of charge. The associated national meta-information for each series is also available on-line on the Web site. The website is trilingual in English, French and Spanish, and it will continue to be maintained and developed in these three languages. • LABORSTA was maintained and updated on a weekly basis up through the end of the 2012. Although the site remains available, it is no longer being maintained or updated.

• In line with the collection of new statistical material, the entire program of dissemination through printed publications and CD-ROMs will be revised and enhanced. The main dissemination tool will be the Department's new data dissemination website, which will be updated weekly.

• Short Term Indicators database, launched during 2010 comprising monthly and quarterly information from about 100 countries and territories, will be fully integrated to the new ILOSTAT database in first quarter 2013.

• The collection and dissemination of data through SDMX (Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange) will be implemented in 2013 as to give users and data providers the possibility of interchanging data electronically.

OECD Statistical DataWarehouse (OECD.Stat)

 

Purpose

 

OECD.Stat is the core element of the OECD Statistical Information System as it is the central repository and retrieval tool for the Organisation's statistical information resources. OECD.Stat is designed to contain the validated datasets to be shared and/or published, a special dataset for "Reference Series", all the statistical metadata associated with these datasets, and the glossary of statistical terms.

 

Objectives and outputs

 

OECD.Stat consists of a closed data warehouse with its standard entry and exit gates and a user front end (web browser). OECD.Stat is the basis of the new corporate tools for the statistical publications and electronic dissemination.

 

The main objectives and benefits for statisticians are: improved efficiency of statistical processes; improved quality, timeliness, visibility and accessibility of OECD's statistical resources; harmonisation effect of statistical classifications etc.; new and easier horizontal data products such as "Statistical Yearbook" and "OECD in Figures"; simplified and harmonised user access right management.

 

The data warehouse is physically independent from production systems and permits an easier management of connections from production databases (when new database versions or platforms), avoiding multiple interlinks between different production platforms.

 

Main objectives and benefits for analysts are: fast and user-friendly tools for locating and retrieving verified statistical data and metadata; availability of Reference Series and joint display of data from different OECD sources; easier interpretability of data; easier gathering of data to support horizontal projects; pre-defined executive reports; accessibility in-house and on the Internet without additional installations.

 

Today, about 95% of the OECD datasets are loaded into the OECD.Stat Data warehouse.

 

Respecting well-defined access right limitations, the data is available to specific users and groups within the OECD, to all OECD Staff, to member countries government staff via the OLISnet service, to the general public on the Internet, to specific public MyOECD users and to registered customers via the iLibrary commercial channel (including specific formats like Branded Views).

 

The OECD.Stat data warehouse can also be accessed via the OECD analytical software (FAME, SAS, Stata, SPSS, Eviews) and includes a utility for an automated publishing of data in PC-Axis format for the OECD commercial service (iLibrary) as well as SDMX formats.

 

Main Developments for 2013

 

General aspects:

 

OECD.Stat is used by 7 other organisations (ABS, NZL, ISTAT, EC, IMF, Mimas, UNESCO). Many other international organisations, Central banks and National Statistical Offices are also investigating sharing the system. This needs a significant support activity.

 

Publishing from the Statistical Information System

Purpose

To provide a publishing environment for the production of statistical publications and create new statistical dissemination services in the framework of the OECD Statistical Information System. The services include publishing complete databases, ready-made key tables and indicators with dynamic graphs. The publishing environment comprises a publishing tool where the table is defined by the statistical editors in collaboration with authors, and a formatting engine where the data are extracted from OECD.Stat and formatted for multiple outputs such as paper, PDF, Excel, HTML and JSON to feed into Active Charts. The environment improves the efficiency of the publishing process and the quality of final publications in print and electronic format.

Objectives and outputs

Produce publications through the publishing process from databases available in the central data base OECD.Stat. Continue to develop new procedures to take into account specificities of these new publications. Create new services to disseminate statistics.

In 2012, Active Charts were launched. Active Charts are simple, shareable, web 2.0 interactive chart data visualizations which are automatically produced through the existing publishing process. In 2012, improvements in the OECD.Stat browser were made available on the OECD iLibrary. New complete databases, Key tables and Active Charts were published. Complete databases were published offline using a centralised process from OECD.Stat.

PAC statistical editors load IEA data (14 datasets updated quarterly and 50 datasets updated annually), which represents the largest volume of data loaded by Directorates, into OECD.Stat. Statistical editors worked with directorates to review and improve the quality of the data and metadata being disseminated from the central data warehouse.

In 2012 PAC used the publishing system to produce 23 statistical publications in two languages, including 2 annual outlook publications, 2 publications which are monthly, 1 quarterly and some 360 key tables. All statistical publications are made available as Excel, PDF, Web and print on demand.

Main Developments for 2013

General aspects:

In 2013, improvements in the OECD database browser will be made available on the OECD iLibrary. Regarding statistical publications, the publishing environment will be used in 2013 to publish updates of publications already produced out of OECD.Stat in 2012 and to apply the procedures to at least 10 additional statistical publications. In 2013, one aim is to improve the discovery of high level indicators and complete databases through a new data portal, "data.oecd.org". The publishing system output will be used to publish more Key tables and mobile apps in 2013 (e.g. Internet Economy Outlook and "OECD data" mobile apps).

Pension Monitoring
 
 
Purpose

 

• In order to ensure that pension reforms are both financially and socially sustainable, it is essential to monitor the outcomes of changes in pension system parameters and rules. The activity uses a microeconomic approach which is particularly suitable for international comparison of pension policies. Prospective individual benefit entitlements from mandatory pension arrangements are modelled for full-career workers at different earnings levels. The framework uses the same economic assumptions for all countries and thereby abstracts from non-pension factors, which often distort international comparisons of pension systems. See www.oecd.org/els/social/pensions/PAG.

 

Objectives and outputs

 

• To monitor pension systems and pension policies in OECD countries, to collect, up-date and analyse information on pension system rules and parameters and to model prospective pension entitlements for standard retirement, early retirement and interrupted careers. The output of this activity is published in regularly updated reports.

 

• The third edition of Pensions at a Glance Asia/Pacific will be released in November 2013. The Women and Pensions report will be published in 2013. A regional report covering LAC will be produced during 2013 and work will commence on an update to Pensions Panorama.

 

• In 2011:

 

- The main Pensions at a Glance publication was released and is available at www.oecd.org/els/social/pensions/PAG

 

- Key data were disseminated in OECD.Stat via http://stats.oecd.org/Index.aspx?DataSetCode=ELSPENSIONS

 

- an on-line Pension calculator was updated, via http://www.oecd.org/document/12/0,3343,en_2649_34757_43024076_1_1_1_1,00.html

 

- most indicators related to pensions are available on-line in MS-Excel format via www.oecd.org/els/social/pensions/PAG#data

 

• The fifth edition of Pensions at a Glance will be published in late 2013. The report will include updates of the models with 2010 parameters.

 

Non-member countries involved in the activity:

 

• Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Ecuador, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Malta, Peru, Romania, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovenia Former, South Africa, Thailand, Uruguay, Venezuela

 

Databases

 

• Pension monitoring database

 

Main Developments for 2013

 

General aspects:

 

• The range of countries covered under the Pensions at a Glance umbrella is constantly expanding with the update for PaG Asia being released in late 2013. Additional regional publications are also planned to cover the LAC and ECA regions with an update of Pensions Panorama also beginning later in the year. Further areas of analysis will concentrate on periods of career absence because of unemployment as well as the release of the Women and Pensions report in 2013.

 

Data management:

 

• The number of indicators covered in the data will be increased leading to the creation of a pensions database.
