EULF Best Practice 24

EULF Best Practice 24 - GeoSTAT Projects
Country: Various EU Member States
Policy domain: Cross-Policy Supporting Statistics
Process owners: EUROSTAT and National Statistical Institutions (NSIs)
Short description: The GEOSTAT initiative was taken jointly by Eurostat and the National Statistical Institutes to establish a data and production infrastructure for geospatial statistics. This infrastructure is to be defined and designed through a series of GEOSTAT projects. The infrastructure will become an integral part of the European Statistical System’s (ESS's) existing statistical data infrastructure. The idea is to incorporate the production of geospatial statistics into the various phases of the Generic Statistical Business Process Model (GSBPM), which provides the framework for the production of official statistics. The European Spatial Data Infrastructure (INSPIRE) will be another key element in geo-enabling statistical production. GEOSTAT's main goal is to support NSIs in setting up their data, methods, and production systems to achieve a fully geocoded 2021 census. All census output should be aggregated from geocoded point-based information, providing sufficient flexibility to publish statistics for any type of territorial classification, including grids.
