CBS Provincial Data Center/Limburg

On 30 January 2018, CBS and the province of Limburg signed a collaborative agreement for the establishment of the first Provincial Data Centre, the CBS Brightlands Data Centre.
The provincial government is aiming to adopt a more data-driven approach. Setting up a data centre at provincial level also fits in with the transfer of responsibilities from central to provincial government level. In addition, this is an opportunity for CBS to start active collaboration at all different levels (central, provincial and municipal) with respect to data-related policy issues. This will allow comparison and aggregation of information at all different levels. After all, the bulk of information will be based on CBS data, which is consistently underpinned by the same definitions.
