Description The project tries to understand the impact that big data may have on our statistical processes and outputs. The high level aims of the ONS Big Data Project are to: investigate the potential advantages that big data provides for official statistics, to understand the challenges with using these sources and to establish an ONS policy on big data and longer term strategy incorporating ONS’s position within Government and internationally in this field; and make recommendations on the best way to support the ONS strategy on big data beyond the life of this project.
