Dot.Stat: It's all that

Presenter 1
Richard Wiseman

Presenter 2
Susan Noble
UK Data Service

In this presentation we will introduce ‘UKDS.Stat’ the new data delivery platform for international macrodata at the UK Data Service. We will describe the exciting new features of UKDS.Stat including:

  • fully integrated metadata
  • data visualisation
  • search across all datasets in one platform
  • save and share data subsets as queries
  • combine data from different datasets

We will then describe how we have made it possible for users to access both Open and protected data within the same platform. Finally we will illustrate how our implementation of authentication for UKDS.Stat was shared with the Statistical Information Systems Collaboration Community (SIS-CC) – a group of organisations co-developing ‘.Stat’. The OECD led SIS -CC was set up so that members could benefit from a broad collaboration, sharing of experiences, knowledge and best practices, and to enable cost-effective innovation in a minimal time. Members include the International Monetary Fund, the European Commission, Australian Bureau of Statistics and UNESCO.
