|Outline del sito||The BIS, ECB, EUROSTAT, IMF, OECD, UN, and the World Bank have joined together to focus on business practices in the field of statistical information that would allow more efficient processes for exchange and sharing of data and metadata within the current scope of our collective activities. |
The goal is to explore common e-standards and ongoing standardization activities that could allow us to gain efficiency and avoid duplication of effort in our own work and possibly for the work of others in the field of statistical information.
We intend to do this by taking advantage of existing and emerging:
- exchange protocols, such as GESMES/CB which was implemented by central banks for exchanging time series;
- dissemination formats, such as that implicit in the IMF’s Dissemination Standards Bulletin Board (DSBB); and
- e-standards, such as Extensible Markup Language (XML).
|Contenuti del sito||SDMX Standards Version 1.0|
The SDMX Standards Version 1.0 provide the technical specification of a set of XML- and EDIFACT-syntax data formats based on a common information model. The scope of this effort is to define formats for the exchange of aggregated statistical data and the metadata needed to understand how the data is structured. The major focus is on data presented as time series, although cross-sectional XML formats are also supported.
These specifications have been developed, reviewed, and adopted by SDMX. In due course they will be put forward to the International Standards Organization (ISO) for adoption.
my note: SDMX may in some way compete with xbrl;, they may eventually merge in a common platform for exchanging structured financial and statistical information.
