Statistical methodology develops effective and efficient production methods for statistical information, based on both general government registers as well as tailor made primary data collection.
This paper by Ralph Foorthuis and Sjaak Brinkkemper describes the various architectures at the project level, when conforming to Enterprise Architecture. Amongst the architectures described are Project Architecture, Project Start Architecture and Software Architecture. They are placed in the context of Enterprise Architecture and Domain Architecture.
This handbook provides general guidelines on how to make statistics. It does not contain a comprehensive description of the contents of business statistics, nor is it a cookery book, providing an enumeration of recipes. Rather, it deals with cooking principles and methods, thus supporting survey statisticians in preparing their own recipes for making statistics, each from his own specific objective and infra structure.The handbook applies for the setting up of new surveys as well as for the redesign of existing surveys. It is meant to serve several parties of interest. It supports survey managers of EU member states as well as transition countries that are moving towards the EU statistical system. And it provides training material for statistical courses, both at the EU and at the national level. Finally, it offers the professional users of business statistics a look behind the scenes, so as to enhance their understanding of what they read.
This document surveys the desired set of tools based on 1) acknowledged business functions in the production of a statistic, 2) the current set of tools and 3) general criteria that are considered relevant for the selection of tools.
