Modernisation of Statistics Production 2-4 November
Statistical agencies all over the world are facing increased demands to raise quality, often with fewer resources. At the same time there is strong pressure to increase understanding among stakeholders for how we deliver our output in an efficient and structured manner. There are many innovative approaches towards modernising organisations and operations to meet these challenges. The approaches all seem to go in a similar direction, focussing on the processes within the organisation and how they interact in quality management systems. Increased degrees of standardisation and re-use of best practices across surveys and indeed across organisations are key aspects of these approaches.
In this time of change, it is vital to utilise the cooperative spirit that exists among statistical agencies and share our knowledge and experiences with each other. Statistics Sweden would like to contribute to facilitating this cooperation by organising an invitational conference in Stockholm on November 2–4, 2009, bringing together experts from across the world representing the current state-of-the-art in this field. We would like to welcome you to join this group, to learn from others, and to share your own knowledge and expertise.
The entire conference will be held in English.
- The role of the customer in statistics production
- Quality assurance systems
- Service-oriented architectures
- Management of processes and resources
- Collection and use of paradata in statistics production
- Innovations in data collection and design
- Optimal use of registers and administrative data
- Generic business models and standardised processes
Experts in different fields have been invited to write papers for the conference and to present those in plenary sessions. Each of the eight sessions will have two speakers, an invited discussant, and time for floor discussion. There will be a panel discussion at the end of the conference.
An invitation to attend has been sent out from Statistics Sweden to a broad range of statistical agencies.
