International Conference on Big Data for Official Statistics


  • Abu Dhabi UAE

Hosted by:

National Bureau of Statistics of UAE, the United Nations Statistics Division and the Australian Bureau of Statistics


The second global conference on Big Data for official statistics will take place in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. This conference intends to take the development of Big Data one step further. Thus far, many examples of Big Data projects have been demonstrated. Now, the focus will be on lessons learned on the basis of detailed descriptions of those case studies. This is a first step towards guidance on using Big Data for Official Statistics, which can stimulate training, pilot projects and bringing pilot projects into the production environment. Therefore, the theme of the second global conference is 'moving from examples to guidelines'.
