Under the auspice of the HLG-MOS, several models have been developed to support modernising the production of official statistics. The Generic Activity Model for Statistical Organizations (GAMSO), Generic Statistical Business Process Model (GSBPM), Generic Statistical Information Model (GSIM), and Common Statistical Production Architecture (CSPA) are the cornerstones of the standards-based modernisation vision of the HLG-MOS. Collectively these are called the “ModernStats” models.
The ModernStats models are used by many organisations across the world. Some organisations use one of the models, some use more than one and others are just beginning to implement the ModernStats models in their organisations.
The workshop aims to progress works on development and maintenance of the ModernStats models and provide a ModernStats models user platform. In particular, the workshop will:
- Promote the new developments of the ModernStats models and related works;
- Increase the understanding of the models and interrelationships between them;
- Facilitate the sharing of experiences, ideas and plans for modernising statistical production by implementing the models;
- Identify opportunities for international collaboration activities.
The target audience of the workshop includes staff of statistical organisations who are responsible for developing, implementing and promoting standards-based modernisation of producing statistics as well as those using or thinking about using models for the modernisation of statistical production.
