This WP will also occasionally provide input to actions/deliverables of WP 1 and WP 3.

The goal of the statistical data warehouse is to enable NSIs to produce flexible outputs with a maximum re-use of data that is already in the statistical system.

This work package covers all essential methodological elements for designing, building and implementing the statistical data warehouse.

  • Build on the metadata framework (WP 1) and evaluate it from a methodological viewpoint.
  • Study and recommendations on the position and role of the Business Register (BR) in the context of a statistical data warehouse
  • Produce guidelines (including options) on how the BR interacts with the S-DWH .
  • Examine selective editing options for the S-DWH and provide guidelines.
  • Study and recommendations on the various ways of "linking data" :
  • Consider the data linking aspects of combining data (from surveys and administrative sources etc.) with respect to the S-DWH .
  • Produce guidelines for application within the S-DWH especially with respect to hierarchical data.
  • Inventory of deliverables of other ESSnets regarding micro data linking and recommendations on how to use them in relation to the S-DWH .
  • Study on the impact of data confidentiality in the area of micro data linking and data warehousing; consider the confidentiality aspects of combining data (from surveys and administrative sources etc.) with respect to the S-DWH :
  • Liaise with the ESSnet on SDC ;
  • Produce guidelines for application within the S-DWH especially with respect to hierarchical data;
  • The European dimension: study and guidelines on the concepts of "ownership" (ensuring data quality) and "common validation" in the context of delivering data to Eurostat , with respect to National legislation.
  • Produce a methodological mapping of the "GSBPM " (extended to cover administrative data) using the Business Architecture from WP 3. This should include an outline of where methodological gaps still exist when considering implementation of the S-DWH .
