5.2 Metadata management team

=20

Our core team for metadata systems consists of one senior adviser, one s= ystem architect for metadata systems and four programmers in the Department= of IT. When necessary we draw on Iother T expertise from the same departme= nt.

=20

Metadata system maintenance is carried out by two or three people in the= Department of IT. Maintenance of the system contents, i.e. the metadata, i= s carried out by all statistical divisions with support from the senior adv= iser in the core metadata team.

=20

Details per system are as follows:

=20

Our systems for classifications and variables and our metadata portal ar= e owned by the Department of IT. In-house development (2 developers and two= customers) has been carried out by the Department of IT. Maintenance of th= e systems is carried out by the same divisions (1 developer, 1 system archi= tect and 1 system owner) with the addition of two people fro= m the Department of Data collection and statistical methods in the case of = classifications. Maintenance of the metadata in the systems is the responsi= bility of all 20 statistical divisions.

=20

Our master metadatabase for questionnaires is being developed by 3 devel= opers from the Department of IT, 2 external consultants and a project leade= r from the Department of Data Collection and statistical methods. This meta= database will replace two previous metadatabases.

=20

Our service library for master metadata systems was developed by 7 devel= opers from the Department of IT and is being maintained by one.

=20

Our Administrative system for products, projects and processes is owned = by the Department of administrative affairs and direktor general. The previ= ous system was outsourced by the previous owner but the new system was deve= loped by 2 developers from the Department of IT in cooperation with the new= system owner and one external consultant.

=20

Our system for file descriptions was developed and is being maintained i= n the Department of IT. Maintenance of the metadata in the system is the re= sponsibility of all statistical divisions.

=20

Maintenance of the metadata in the system for event history metadata is = the responsibility of two statistical divisions (Division for Social Welfar= e Statistics and the Division for Education Statistics).

=20

5.3 Training and knowledge management

=20

All new employees participate in a course designed to give them an overv= iew of all areas in Statistics Norway. Most new employees attend this = course within 3-6 months of starting work in Statistics Norway.

=20

5.4 Partnerships and cooperation

=20

Statistics Norway participates in relevant international meetings e.g. M= ETIS, MSIS and informal groups e.g. Neuchâtel (classifications and va= riables). In addition, there is a strong tradition of Scandinavian collabor= ation (e.g. dissemination database StatBank) and collaboration within the S= tatistical Network (currently Australia, Canada, Italy, New Zealand, Norway= , Sweden, United Kingdom).

=20

5.5 Other issues

=20

So long as metadata is not an integral part of the statistical productio= n cycle it will be prioritised lower than the publication of statistics.=20
