Statistical Leadership Seminar
The DDI (Data Documentation Initiative) standard is used around the world by a range of Data Archives, National Statistical Offices and other agencies. The latest version spans the full data life-cycle supporting functions such as collection design, questionnaire generation, data collection and processing, and data discovery and exploration.
DDI is an internationally recognised standard for structuring information that can be utilised systematically for discovering and working with relevant statistical content (eg data, classifications, variables, questions), as well as being meaningful to, and interpretable by, people.
This seminar presents an overview of the use of DDI around the world and the value added. It is not a technical presentation.
