Information

In May 2013 A temporary task team was set up to work out the key issues with using Big Data for official statistics, identify priority actions and formulate a project proposal. The team worked virtually, by Wiki and Webex, and has now produced a number of preliminary outputs

    • a draft project proposal consisting of three major work strands: an exploration of strategic and methodological issues; analysis of Big Data sources and international replication of outputs using a shared computing environment; and training and dissemination activities.
    • an inventory of Big Data sources and projects, based on the above classification (still under development: will be posted here shortly)
