The Philippines Statistics Authority, along with PARIS21, will be organising a workshop on New Data Sources for Official Statistics on 22-23 June 2016 in Quezon City, Philippines.
PARIS21 previously organised a joint workshop "Access to New Data Sources for Statistics: Business Models for Private-Public Partnerships" with the OECD Statistics Directorate which brought together stakeholders from the commercial, non-commercial and public sectors to review opportunities, challenges and lessons learnt in using new data sources (telecom data, social media, sensors, credit card records, etc.) to enrich official statistics. During this workshop, PARIS21 also released a discussion paper titled "Public-Private Partnerships: Lessons Learned, Future Steps" which focuses on how non-official sources of data -- big data in particular -- are attracting enormous interest in the world of official statistics.
