Innovations in data collection, data dissemination, data access and data analytics “Modernisation: Evolution or revolution”
Pádraig Dalton, John Dunne & Donal KellyGlobal Conference on a Transformative Agenda for Official StatisticsNew York 15-16 January 2015Slide2
What am I going to talk about?
Context for the paper
What am I hoping for?
Inherited our organisations and systems
Trying to wear a global hat!
Provocative and perhaps
Lots of questions – fewer answers?
Consider the power of “One Voice”Slide4
Modernisation – Broad perspective
Expectation may be technology, Big Data, CSPA
Context and audience led to broadening of definition
of modernisation and relativity
sking questions to tap into experience at conference and develop understandingSlide5
Only constant - change
Pace of change
Increased user demand
Emergence of global user
age – technology, sources, strategic alliances?
Availability of skills?Slide6
ontext - continued
Politicisation – crisis, targets and indicators
Resources – are we too passive, a consistent message?
Urgency some areas – revolution?
Other areas will take more time – evolution?
How do we decide – links to collaboration?
Modernisation Maturity Model?Slide7
Modernisation Maturity Model (MMM)Just an idea – has it a role?Slide8
Without appropriate institutional settings for NSIs, despite having numbers, do we have robust, trusted, reliable and internationally comparable data?Slide9
Statistical Framework Pillars
Freedom of Information (FOI)
Statistical legislation the starting point?
Long-standing problem outside power of NSIs – but can we influence?
Without Data Protection and FOI can we have an effective statistical framework?Slide10
Secondary data sources
Variety of data sources
Hot topic is Big Data but…….
Administrative data also evolving
- Access remains an issue – Why?
- Value proven where in use
- Have we a communications problem to address?
Have we a role in educating custodians on why and value?Slide11
Must continue our work in this area
Are considerable opportunities and challenges
Mobile phone data, smart metering, traffic loop data
Need to move from potential to actual delivery
- Conflating volume with insight
- Sustainability of data sources over time
- Availability of skill sets
- Technology challenges
- Privacy and data security concerns existSlide12
Not necessarily better than traditional sources but there is value
Is it over-hyped at this point and are we managing expectations?
Those that can should push ahead but ….
Coherent output(s) to maximise value of investment
Create a road-map for others to followSlide13
Privacy & Data Protection
Are a range of challenges
- Linking secondary and primary data sources
- Implication of strategic alliances
- Privacy and efficiency debateSlide14
Privacy & Data Protection
do we retain trust in such an environment
Do we have a role in surfacing the issues and bringing a balance to the debate?
Beyond legal issues – cultural also?
Proliferation of mobile technology
Pace of change is incredible
NSIs must share experiences (and tools) – collaborationSlide16
With technology and “systems development tools” changing so quickly in what skills etc
should NSIs invest?
Public-private partnerships – if so in what areas?
What is the appropriate model for these partnerships?
Should we “club” together to increase influence/negotiating power?
Could or should we pool resources?Slide17
Standards based modernisation
A lot of work ongoing
UNECE HLG MOS – GSBPM, GSIM, GAMSO, CSPA
Stability/maturity of standards - Is there development for development sake in some areas?Slide18
Standards based modernisation
Is there development for development sake in some areas?
Does it mitigate against implementation?
Proliferation of players (ownership and maintenance)– is it a challenge?
How can we collaborate and influence the development and maintenance of modernisation relevant standards?Slide19
resources and privacy
ace to the bottom?
Must improve timeliness but trade-off limit?
Are we clear about where we want to position official statistics – our brand?
Are we all agreed on our competitive advantage(s) and unique selling point?Slide20
Each of us strike our own balance or One Voice?
How can we progress these communications challenges?
What will be the most effective approach?Slide21
Couldn’t address all of the modernisation issues
Focussed on what we thought were the big strategic issues
Lots of questions – fewer answers!!
Broader definition of modernisation required
Is an urgency to modernise in many areas
are also modernisation challenges that will take time
WHO, WHAT, WHERE and WHEN? MMM to help?Slide22
Collaboration is key – easy to say, difficult to do effectively
Are a lot of modernisation programmes underway at both national and international level
What are the most effective and efficient mechanisms, and divisions of labour, to support the transformative agenda?Slide23Slide24Slide25
