Data managers meeting

19-06-2008  – 20-06-2008 New York

As part of the effort by the UN Statistics Division to facilitate the easy access to the data resources of the UN System in February 2008, UNdata (data.un.org), a web-based data access system, was launched to the public. In this context, UNSD is organizing a Data Managers meeting. The overall objective is to bring the database experts of the UN partner agencies together, especially those who have already contributed data to the system and those who intend to do so in the near future. The specific objectives are (i) for UNSD to inform the partners on the latest developments of the system, (ii) for the partner agencies to discuss the current content and planned future updates of UNdata and (iii) to reach agreements on in the form of individual Memoranda of Understanding on the maintenance of the system, in particular the frequency of data and metadata updates. The meeting will be conducted in English.
