The second event of the 2023 series of CODATA – DDI Alliance webinars will take place on 14 April at 10:00-11:30 EDT / 14.00-15:30 UTC / 16:00-17:30 CEST.  *Register here to attend!*

Statistical agencies are seeing a much more federated and complex data ecosystem where data flows from one organization to another.  Metadata standards are key to facilitate this movement, including through greater automation to collect, manage, produce, and disseminate data.  Metadata standards simplify sharing, reduce development time, and promote transparency across agencies, especially by ensuring that similar things are described the same way.

In this webinar, we present an international selection of three practical implementations demonstrating how using DDI metadata standards has benefited large statistical agencies.  In the first presentation, Chantal Vaillancourt, Section Manager – metadata infrastructure, Centre for Statistical and Data Standards at Statistics Canada, will discuss Statistics Canada’s modernization towards a robust standards-enabled Enterprise Metadata Ecosystem, which is the foundation for organizational modernization through enabling metadata enabled automated business process, interoperability of data and metadata and transparency to Canadians. Next, Christophe Dzikowski,metadata expert, National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies (INSEE), France will discuss how the DDI can be used in an active manner to drive surveys. Finally, Dan Gillman, Information Scientist, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, will discuss how DDI can be applied to describe complex survey microdata and multi-dimensional time series.

Presenters are: Chantal Vaillancourt, Statistics Canada; Christophe Dzikowski, National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies (INSEE), France; Dan Gillman, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.  The moderator will be Jared Lyle, Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR).  There will be time for questions and discussion with our expert panel.

We look forward to seeing you on 14 April!
