The joint OECD - PARIS21 Workshop "Access to New Data Sources for Statistics: Business Models for Private-Public Partnerships" will be held on 17-18 December 2015 at the OECD Headquarters in Paris.

The workshop will bring together stakeholders from the commercial, non-commercial and public sectors and will start by reviewing opportunities, challenges and lessons learnt in using new data sources (telecom data, social media, sensors, credit card records, etc.) to enrich official statistics. The workshop will examine the specific aspects of access to such data. This concerns the building of trust between the various stakeholders and explicit agreements to deal with data confidentiality and privacy, and risk management in using such types of data.

One particular objective is to address the question of how to develop a business model that is attractive for the private-for-profit and non-for-profit sector to provide access and share its data. Key points arising from the workshop discussions could be a first step in developing a set of guidelines, principles or protocols on the access and use of private data.
