Statistical Methods and Indicators


Indicators of the knowledge based economy and society are still fragmentary and dispersed because, for instance, conceptual and practical problems in measurement are not yet resolved or because new statistical methods and tools are needed, or because there is limited international harmonization of data.

This theme focused on:

  • developing new statistical tools and methods, in particular, to support the development of the new indicators. These included new forms of data collection, processing and dissemination. More specifically, as partial and dispersed information is becoming increasingly available on the topic, developments were encouraged to explore new approaches such as textual analysis, concept and knowledge formation, etc.
  • developing indicators for the new information economy. This included work on concepts and models needed to measure appropriately the significant phenomena, work on data collection on a pilot or true scale basis, etc.
  • addressing, in the shorter term, socio-economic indicators as identified in the e Europe initiative Action Plan.
