Definition
Media by which statistical data and metadata are disseminated.
Context
This metadata element refers to the various means of dissemination used for making the data available to the public. It includes a description of the various formats available, including where and how to get the information (for instance paper, electronic publications, on-line databases).
Remark
This concept was also part of the SDMX Metadata Common Vocabulary (MCV), as published in SDMX Content-Oriented Guidelines (COG), annex 4 "Metadata Common Vocabulary", in 2009 (http://www.sdmx.org). In February 2016 the Metadata Common Vocabulary was replaced by the SDMX Glossary 2016.
