Courrier des statistiques N2 - 2019
The dossier of Issue N2 of the Courrier des statistiques reflects a thirty-year tradition of cooperation between INSEE and DESTATIS, the German
Federal Statistical Office. Two articles illustrate the impetus given to official
statistics by international institutions: the 16th United Nations’ Sustainable Development
Goal 16 has contributed to the rapid emergence of measures of security and satisfaction
with institutions among French citizens; the European system of short-term business
statistics, created along with the Euro, continues to evolve under the new FRIBS Regulation:
French short-term statistics are adapting and anticipating the changes ahead.
With its new statistical metadata repository known as RMéS, the French official statistical system has reached a new milestone: based on international standards, metadata on statistical activities will be activated throughout the life cycle and managed in a common information system complete with shared services. Another reference system has been put in place under the Élire project over the past three years: the Single Electoral Register, based on a high-quality and largely updated data exchange system.
Finally, the last article examines the "profiling" of firms carried out by INSEE with the aim of better identifying relevant economic actors. Here too, the official statistical system is adapting to changes in its environment and is building processes in which processing automation and expertise complement each other effectively.
