INE Portugal launches STATSLAB - Statistics in development
Statistics Portugal launched a new project : STATSLAB - Statistics in development
This statistics have two characteristics: i) they are part of projects aiming at creating new statistical products which are still under development and, yet, ii) they already contain useful information for economic and social analysis.
The increasing possibility of access by Statistics Portugal to administrative sources, through the Simplex+ program, such as to the reporting of the Monthly Remuneration for Social Security by company, and non-conventional sources, namely obtained from private entities, raise new challenges to Statistics Portugal public service mission. In particular, it is important that the information from these sources have an impact in new and relevant statistics for the lives of citizens and businesses and for public policy makers.
Thus, in order to take advantage of these sources, and using recently developed techniques of statistical treatment of large volume of data, new statistical products will be presented in this page, before acquiring their final format.
In addition, new forms of presentation of information and results derived from statistics already published will be tested, using new analytical tools.
The first data under this porject: - Gross monthly earnings per employee (Social Security – Data analyzed by Statistics Portugal) - has recently been published.
