PDF file SDMXCompactData.xsd
This is a base schema which is extended by users into key-family-specific schemas owned by their creator, which are optimized for marking up large amounts of time-series data. (See Section 03A SDMX-ML for standard mappings from a key family to a key-family-specific schema).

PDF file SDMXUtilityData.xsd
This is a base schema which is extended by users into key-family-specific schemas owned by their creator, which are optimized for validation with a generic XML parser. (See Section 03A SDMX-ML for standard mappings from a key family to a key-family-specific schema).

PDF file SDMXCrossSectionalData.xsd
This is a base schema which is extended by users into key-family-specific schemas owned by their creator, which are optimized for marking up large amounts of cross-sectional data. (See Section 03A SDMX-ML for standard mappings from a key family to a key-family-specific schema).
