Summary

In 2010 the Bureau of the Conference of European Statisticians created the High-Level Group for Strategic Developments in Business Architecture in Statistics (now called the High-Level Group for the Modernisation of Statistical Production and Services), comprising heads of several national and international statistical organizations, to reflect on and guide strategic developments in the ways in which official statistics are produced. The High-Level Group has developed a vision paper to provide the necessary coordination and strategic direction to the many international initiatives currently working on related topics. This vision paper is presented to the Conference of European Statisticians to inform delegates, and seek their feedback and support.

This has shaped the way official statistics are designed and produced. We have elaborate coding schemes like the International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC) on which we have based carefully designed surveys. Gradually - and somewhat reluctantly at first - we have included the use of official registrations in our daily work. We determine which registrations would be able to fit our pre-specified needs, then try to process and edit them to replace or supplement survey data.
