Statistical Need

Business

A requirement, request or other notification that will be considered by an organization. A Statistical Need does not necessarily have structure or format - it is a 'raw' need as received by the organization. A Statistical Need may be of a variety of types including Environmental Change or Information Request.

The Statistical Need is a proposed or imposed requirement, request or other notification as it has been received by an organization. A Statistical Need is a raw expression of a requirement, and is not necessarily well-defined. A related object - Change Definition - is created when a Statistical Need is analyzed by an organization. Change Definition expresses the raw need in well-defined, structured terms. 
Once a Statistical Need has been received, the first step is to do the conceptual work to establish what it is we are trying to measure. The final output of this conceptual work is the Change Definition

In some cases, the Statistical Need can result from the Assessment of the quality, efficiency, etc. of an existing process.
