The Modernisation of Administrative Registers in Germany Current Developments and Challenges for Official Statistics
Translation of a part of a paper published in "Ouvrir dans un nouvel ongletWISTA - Wirtschaft und Statistik" Vol. 4/2018.
Optimum use of existing data is a key to effective and future-oriented public administration. Thus, Germany’s National Regulatory Control Council (Nationaler Normenkontrollrat) has put the vision of modernised, digitally connected registers on the political agenda and has published an expert opinion. With the consent of persons and companies concerned, public authorities could have electronic access to many data that so far have not been available to them or have had to be collected specifically. This would lead to better and low-burden administrative services. The Federal Statistical Office of Germany (DESTATIS) now applies this vision, identifying through a systematic approach the potential of using existing administrative registers and data. A common platform on administrative data sources is created to gather knowledge on existing registers.
