UNECE task team providing guidance to the official statistics community about DDI

A new task team under the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) High-level Group for the Modernization of Official Statistics is providing guidance to the official statistics community about how to use DDI and SDMX throughout the statistical production process to support standard-based modernisation.

This guidance will include a high-level analysis of where and how DDI and SDMX can enable Generic Statistical Business Process Model (GSBPM) solutions along with recommendations on which concrete DDI and SDMX classes can be used to best describe Generic Statistical Information Model (GSIM) inputs and outputs of each GSBPM sub-process. Together with GSIM, GSBPM provides a conceptual framework describing the information and process viewpoints of statistical production. In that context, DDI and SDMX provide implementation models to facilitate the production, management and exchange of data and its related metadata.

DDI community members on the task team include Flavio Rizzolo (Statistics Canada) and Dan Gillman (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics).
