New DDI Glossary Working Group

A new working group has been formed under the auspices of the Scientific Board to produce, maintain, and update the DDI Glossary of terms.  The DDI Glossary is a resource that users may consult for gaining a better understanding of DDI products. Other standards development efforts produce glossaries for their user communities - an example within the national statistical office community is the UNECE Statistical Metadata Glossary. SDMX maintains a glossary of their terms, too, at SDMX Glossary.

The Glossary Working Group is led by Dan Gillman.  The WG are looking for other participants to join them.  Please contact Dan ( to join.
