GEOSTAT 1B – Representing 2011 Census data on grid

GEOSTAT 1B consortium carried on the work of GEOSTAT 1A with developing best practices for producing grid statistics. GEOSTAT 1B produced a first version of a grid dataset for the Census year 2011. GEOSTAT 1B produced also a detailed manual on how to create population grids from statistical information using aggregation or disaggregation techniques. The project produced also a case study on accessibility to health care and highlighted how grid statistics can be used for spatial analysis.

The GEOSTAT 1B project report follows the structure of the production chain for statistics in a statistical office to underline the GEOSTAT 1B project partners’ emphasis on the importance of integrating the geographical component into the statistical production system.

The report will bring you as a reader from the first phase of user needs analysis to the final phase of dissemination. The project has along the action generated a series of guidelines and training material beneficial to the whole European Statistical System (ESS). The deliverables and the individual contributions are to be found below:
