The overall objective of the GEOSTAT 2 project is to foster a better integration of statistics and geospatial information in order for the statistical community to provide more qualified descriptions and analyses of society and environment.
The specific objectives are:
The aim of this Eurostat Vision Implementation Project (VIP) is to rationalise the current system of stand-alone social surveys by assessing scenarios for an integrated approach to household/individual micro-data collection. The project is run in a collaboration between Eurostat's units F1 (Social statistics - modernisation and coordination) and B1 (Methodology and Corporate Architecture).
The GEOSTAT action is about developing guidelines for datasets and methods to link census 2010/2011 statistics to a common harmonised grid, building on the network and work made by partners in the European Forum for GeoStatistics.
The GEOSTAT 1B project lasted from 01.01.2012 until 31.12.2013.
Objectives: Develop a set of methods, tools and guidelines to create harmonised data sets, such as on handling confidentiality issues of population statistics and disaggregation processes.
The overall objective off this ESSnet is to provide assistance in the development of more integrated databases and data production systems for business statistics in Member States. The ESSnet
In the context of the MEETS programme (action 3.1) the Framework Partnership Agreement Nr 30121 2010 002-2010 205 has been signed to establish the"ESSnet on micro data linking and data warehousing in statistical production".
Main objectives: A. To define the feasibility and the scope of ‘profiling’ large and complex MNEs;
B. The development of a common conceptual framework, methodology , rules and standards for ‘profiling’;
C. The development of process descriptions, tools, operational guidelines and quality assurance of profiling
Main Objectives: The field of integration is in continuous development. Challenging problems need to be tackled from the methodological point of view to assess the accuracy of integration methods and to ensure the usability of the integrated data set.
