Big Data in Official Statistics 1)Valued collaboration and relationship between industry association and their member; 2) Expanded the traditional role of PIKOM from welfare provision to industry relevant research and advocacy roles; 3) Policy and development institutions have accorded “near official statistics” status to policy and business intelligence culled from the ICT salary compilation activity; 4)PIKOM is the only private sector representative in the Digital Economy Satellite Account (DESA) initiative, which is an official statistical initiative; 5) Being quality and validity conscious, the private industry association data adds to the existing scope and coverage of official statistical system, thus relieves the official statistical role; 6)Association data delves into greater details - average salary of overall ICT professionals or Senior Software engineer data cannot be estimated from the Labour Force Survey data which can only provide at one-digit occupations.
Challenge to be “Official Statistics” If private sector data are used or referred by policy and development agencies, as well as the accorded engagements in various Government policy and development formulation programmes, then the data produced by them should be given “official statistical” status. However, the quality and validity of such data must be endorsed by the national statistical agency who are currently considered the custodian of national statistics. With the technological advancements and big data strategy private sectors are increasingly generating data that are of interest to mainstream. Hence, collaboration between industry associations and official statistical agencies is imperative not only for expanding data scope and coverage and also for existence and relevance of official statistics in the near future.
