Throughout 2013, UNECE's statistical division coordinated activities designed to explore the current situation in statistical organizations with respect to Big Data:

  • identifying the main categories of challenges and opportunities presented by the emergence of Big Data for the official statistics community
  • developing a general classification of Big Data sources and uses with respect to the production of official statistics
  • determining current and planned uses of Big Data for official statistics 
  • identifying relevant research, experiments and projects
  • developing an proposal for a project under the auspices of the HLG (High-Level Group for the Modernisation of Statistical Production and Services) which could help to address some of the challenges and answer some of the questions identified 
  • refining and adding detail to certain aspects of this proposal
  • and finally presenting it to the HLG for approval in November 2013.
