At the Workshop on Strategic Developments in Business Architecture in Statistics, held in Geneva in November 2012, the High-Level Group for the Modernisation of Statistical Production and Services (HLG) and representatives of over 20 expert groups identified two key priorities for work related to statistical modernisation for 2013. One of these priorities is to create a Common Statistical Production Architecture for the world's official statistical industry. This is often referred to as a “plug and play” architecture, as the aim is to make it easier for each country to combine the components of statistical production, regardless of where the components were developed, based on common standards.

Following the first Architecture Sprint for the project (held in Ottawa 8 - 12 April), version 0.1 of the Common Statistical Production Architecture (CSPA) – is now available for review.

Common Statistical Production Architecture v0.1

The deadline for comments on CSPA V0.1 is 17 May 2013. Please send your comments using our Feedback template  to therese.lalor@unece.org
