Developing a Curriculum and Training Modules on Using Big Data for Official Statistics

Developing a Curriculum and Training Modules on Using Big Data for Official Statistics.

To use 'big data' in producing official statistics, statisticians and managers in national and local statistical systems need to closely examine and understand the potential use of various types of big data as well as the issues and limitations of their usage for producing official statistics and indicators.

Statisticians and managers also need to gain and/or improve their knowledge and skills for working with such data and integrating such work in the standard statistical business processes. This project aims at developing a training curriculum to address capacity-building requirements on understanding and assessing the potentials for utilizing big data for official statistics, particularly in developing statistical systems of Asia and the Pacific, based on an assessment of knowledge and skill levels of their human resources.

The curriculum will serve as an integrating framework for developing and conducting training modules focusing on big data utilization in specific domains of official statistics.
