Global SDMX Implementation: Modernising Official Statistics

The Fourth SDMX Global Conference was held from 11 to 13 September 2013 at the OECD in Paris, with BIS and Eurostat acting as co-hosts on behalf of the SDMX Sponsors.


Venue:  OECD Conference Centre, 2 rue André Pascal, 75775 Paris Cedex 16, France -


The theme of this year’s conference was global SDMX implementation and the role that SDMX can play in modernising official statistics. The conference addressed the information needs of statistical managers and SDMX users in implementing and maximising the value of adopting SDMX in data exchange. National statistical agencies, central banks and international organisations shared their experiences and expertise in using SDMX in the collection and dissemination of official statistics.

Topics covered in the SDMX Global Conference 2013 included the application of SDMX in concrete data collection exercises such as national accounts, the associated benefits of data and metadata integration, and the streamlining of national and international data exchange. The SDMX Sponsors reported on the progress of SDMX technical and statistical standards and on the improved SDMX IT infrastructure, including the implementation of the SDMX Global Registry. The conference also provided an opportunity for participants to explore the relationship between SDMX business process models for statistics and other related technical standards.
