Many organisations are required to share statistical data on a daily basis, both as part of regular operations and in response to ad hoc information requests. This data often forms the basis of important proposals and decisions. There are significant costs and exposure to risk if data is misinterpreted, both for data providers, who can lose credibility, and aggregators, who can suffer significant losses if they are basing decisions on poor quality information.
Open standards and technologies offer an opportunity for organisations to reduce costs and compliance issues and be more proactive and efficient in the collection, analysis and dissemination of data.
We have prepared a white paper that describes some of the challenges involved in disseminating statistical data, and explains how one standard for statistics, SDMX, can help.
