Pre-Conference Workshop: ECAS-ENBIS Summer Course - Course 1: Improving the Quality of Official Statistics by Using Alternative Data Sources: The Istat Experience

9 September 2017, 09:00 – 13:00

This half-day ENBIS-17 pre-conference workshop will be given by Giulio Barcaroli from the Italian National Statistical Institute-Istat and is part of the ECAS-ENBIS Summer Course, which can be booked here.

The goal of this course is to illustrate, with reference to a current survey (ICT usage and e-commerce in enterprises), how the use of new sources of data (Internet data) in combination with survey data can increase the quality of the estimates produced by the survey and enrich the information available in a Business Register. Advanced techniques for web scraping, text processing and machine learning will be presented.
