Issue N3 dedicates no fewer than six articles to innovation in official statistics.
The arrival of scaner data will make the Consumer Price Index (CPI) methodology evolve
from 2020 onwards. The Secure Data Access Centre (CASD) is also innovating in the
certification of research based on confidential data. There is further innovation
to develop the platform for collecting data from businesses via the internet, with
an automatic generator and a questionnaire design tool, enhancing the range of services
available for business surveys. Lastly, based on a shared foundation, two new European
regulations on business (FRIBS) and social (IESS) statistics will have specific consequences
for producers, users and cohesion between domains; this issue presents the progress
this represents for INSEE, as well as for the German statistical system.
