Modernization of official statistics

Eric HermouetStatistics Division,

changing environment
Changing environment
  • The data deluge
  • New competitors
  • Changing user demand
  • Economic pressure
the data deluge
The data deluge

The internet

had 1800

exabytes of

data in 2011

exa = 10^18

the data deluge1
The data deluge

50 000 exabytes by 2020

Even if 99.9% are videos, photos, audio files, text messages etc., that still leaves a huge amount of potentially relevant data

new competitors
New competitors
  • Google:
    • Real-time price indices
    • Public Data Explorer
    • First point of reference for the “data generation”
  • Facebook, store cards, credit agencies, ...
    • What if they link their data?

Can they provide an alternative to population censuses?

changing user demands
Changing user demands
  • Statistics made available faster
  • Need to answer wider range of user
    • Need to package data differently
  • Need for more detailed information
  • Need for integrated data products
    • Linking logically datasets from different sources
response of official statistics community
Response of official statistics community
  • Develop and promote new:

Sources Processes Products

  • High-Level Group for Strategic Directions in Business Architecture in Statistics (HLG-BAS)
    • Created by the Conference of European Statisticians in 2010
    • 9 heads of national and international statistical organizations

The Challenges are too big for statistical organizations to tackle on their own.

We need to work together

  • Collaboration
  • Coordination
  • Communication
what is modernization
What is modernization?
  • Common processes
  • Common tools
  • Common methodologies
  • Recognizing that all statistics are produced in a similar way:

No domain is “special”

  • Increased flexibility to adapt to new sources and produce new outputs
industry standards

gsbpm the background
GSBPM – The Background
  • Statistical production has traditionally been organised by topic, e.g. transport, trade, …
  • Some statistical organisations are moving towards a process-based approach
gsbpm why do we need a model
GSBPM: Why do we need a model?
  • To define and describe statistical processes in a coherent way
  • To standardize process terminology
  • To compare and benchmark processes within and between organisations
  • To identify synergies between processes
  • To inform decisions on systems architectures and organisation of resources
gsbpm applicability
GSBPM: Applicability
  • All activities undertaken by producers of official statistics which result in data outputs
  • National and international statistical organisations
  • Independent of data source, can be used for:
    • Surveys / censuses
    • Administrative sources / register-based statistics
    • Mixed sources
key features of gsbpm
Key features of GSBPM
  • Not a linear model
  • Sub-processes do not have to be followed in a strict order
  • It is a matrix, through which there are many possible paths, including iterative loops within and between phases
  • Some iterations of a regular process may skip certain sub-processes
other uses of the gsbpm
Other uses of the GSBPM
  • Harmonizing statistical computing systems
  • Facilitating sharing of statistical software
  • Framework for process quality management
  • Structure for storage of documents
  • Measuring operational costs

The Generic Statistical Information Model is a reference framework of information objects, which enables generic descriptions of data and metadata definition, management, and use throughout the statistical production process

  • Another model is needed to describe data and metadata objects and flows within the statistical business process
  • Provide a common reference model for statistical information
  • Define the information required to drive statistical production processes and define outputs
  • Facilitate building efficient metadata driven collection, processing, and dissemination systems

Leads to a modular approach in designing software
