A CMF case study template was created to guide the content and format of presenting information about experiences with statistical metadata systems. The studies should be updated as projects develop. From a reader's perspective, a consistent approach to presenting case studies can facilitate better understanding and comparability between organizations.

Instructions for completion


The template is divided into sections, in accordance with Part C of the CMF: Statistical Metadata Systems and the Statistical Survey Life Cycle.  Sections 4 - 6 should be the main emphasis of the case study.

The template is flexible. If a particular section (page) is not relevant, it can be deleted or changed to something more appropriate. If there appears to be no place for certain information, new pages should be added. Examples of existing case studies are published at
