18 – 20 February 2009 NTTS Conference NTTS Closing Pedro Díaz Muñoz Director Eurostat
18 – 20 February 2009 NTTS Conference The scenario of official statistics Building up until the beginning of the XXI century (Lisbon process; EMU statistical requirements too little – too late). Saturation point now (response burden, budget cuts) - while statistical demand keeps growing. Slow response to accelerating change. Challenges on data security, confidentiality, privacy. Slow adaptation to new drivers (large datasets, computing power, merging files, automated data capture, integrated processes,new sources…). Less control of the concepts in the sources. Limited exploitation of research results. Risk of losing market share
18 – 20 February 2009 NTTS Conference The opportunities Giovanninis formula VAS = N * [(QSQ*MF)*RS*TS*NL] Research in official statistics Developing tools, methods, solutions. Providing secondary use of data. Giving feedback on quality. Building statistical literacy.
18 – 20 February 2009 NTTS Conference An ambitious research agenda Multi-source/mixed-mode data collection Data integration Standardisation / New architecture Model based estimation Creating knowledge from large datasets New survey types Analysis and visualisation Modelling / indicators Statistical disclosure control Use of e-technologies … But a concerted effort?

18 – 20 February 2009 NTTS Conference Why is now a good moment? The need is there Standards (SDMX, XBRL) Web 2.0 (we can better communicate) Open source (much easier to copy what others do) Pressure for increasing ROI in statistics Modernising Business Statistics (MEETS, ENBES) FP7 opportunities European Statistics Regulation Eurostat vision
