Data integration community of practiceIn 2018, the Committee on Statistics, at its sixth session, noted the importance of integrated statistics and supported a proposal by the secretariat to set up communities of practice as online modalities to further the work around integrated statistics. Later, the Bureau of the Committee on Statistics, in its meeting held in December 2018, agreed on establishing a data integration community of practice as an immediate priority. In 2019, the Regional Steering Group on Population and Social Statistics, at its second meeting, guided by the Committee’s decision, supported trialing the application of a community of practice, as an online learning platform for enhancing the sharing of knowledge and experience relating to data integration. In late April 2020, as per the decisions made by the Committee on Statistics and the Regional Steering Group on Population and Social Statistics, the secretariat launched the Data Integration Community of Practice (DI-CoP), mainly for practitioners in the Asia-Pacific statistical community that have expertise or interest in data integration. The DI-CoP provides an online closed platform for collaboration, learning and sharing knowledge and experience around data integration.
