Following the 2013 Meeting on the Management of Statistical Information = Systems, a Task Team was set up to work out the key issues with using Big D= ata for official statistics, identify priority actions and formulate a proj= ect proposal. As part of its work, the Task Team gathered a significant amo= unt of information about the use of Big Data in various national and intern= ational statistical organizations. The Task Team recognised that this infor= mation could form the basis of a useful resource for the official statistic= s community, and therefore decided to further develop and publish this reso= urce in the form of an inventory.
It is unrealistic to assume that the inventory could record all possible= information relating to the use of Big Data for official statistics; such = an inventory would also be very difficult for a single person or organizati= on to maintain. The inventory is therefore not meant to be exh= austive, but aims to include at least the key resources that will = be most valuable for the official statistics community. Where a resource al= ready exists somewhere on the Internet, the inventory functions as a portal= , holding links to resources and documentation, to avoid duplication and re= duce problems of version control.
The inventory contains structured and searchable information about actua= l and planned use of Big Data in statistical organizations. This informatio= n is held in a standard template, searchable by statistical domain (using t= he Classification of Stati= stical Activities, an existing international standard), and type of Big= Data (using a classification developed by the Task Team).
The inventory is hosted on the UNECE wiki platform. The wiki approach ma= kes it easier for the inventory to be maintained by the whole statistical c= ommunity, thus avoiding the whole burden of maintenance falling on one indi= vidual or organization. This approach also ensures that the inventory is a = relevant and useful resource for all. Read access is now open to the public= (for inventory entries for which author organizations have given permissio= n). Edit access is restricted to staff of national or international statist= ical organizations with an interest in this topic, and must be requested by= contacting email@example.com. The infrastructure is maintained by UNE= CE, which will also act as a moderator if necessary. The 'owner' of the inv= entory is the High-Level Group on the Modernisation of Statistical Producti= on and Services, on behalf of the international statistical community.
The value of the inventory will be increased if members of the official = statistics community add their materials to it. This can be done by r= equesting a user account with edit access, and then clicking the button bel= ow to add an entry. Once you click the button, you will see a new pag= e which asks you to change the title. Fill in as many of the blank fi= elds as possible and press save to add your record to the list. Choos= e 'edit contents' to make any subsequent changes. Please contact = ;support.= firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with your entry.
