Descriptive and well written, this book provides an easy-to-read introduction to the challenges of organizing and integrating modern data worlds, while it explains the contribution of public statistics and the ISO standard SDMX. It is therefore a must for data experts and those who want to become one.
Using everyday examples, the authors show how the concepts of statistics provide the basis for a universal and standardized presentation of any kind of information. They introduce the international statistics standard SDMX (Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange) and describe the profound changes that have been made possible by the introduction of this standard and the related order system for the international statistics community.
