Working with the Central Bureau of Statistics



meeting was held between Data Science researchers and leaders of the Bureau.

The discussion focused on:

  • current and future modes of access for social science researchers to CBS managed data
  • the new “data lake” being formed by the government under the auspices of the Bureau
  • the possible modes of collaboration between researchers and developers from the Bureau and from the Data Science research community.

Several potential avenues for promoting such collaboration were outlined and will be followed up.
