Values, Ethics and What They Mean for Quality

by Walter J. Radermacher

12.10.2022 09:00  – 17:00 

This workshop is part of the series "Statistics for the Public Good - Infrastructure for Decision Making, Research and Discourse", which introduces participants to public statistics as a process in which the design, production and communication of information (statistics) are an integral part. As with other products (architecture, furniture, food, cars, smartphones, etc.), the aim is to optimize the design (form) in relation to the use (function) of the products (“form follows function”).

New data sources and data science methods open up substantial opportunities for research and for improving statistics. However, the integration of traditional and newer methods requires more than the merging of methodology and technology. Rather, it is also a matter of further developing the other dimensions of good information quality, namely those of infrastructure, language and values, simultaneously in an integrative manner in this sense.

Various use cases relevant to current policy at international and national level will be used, in which the course participants will act as statistical stakeholders with distributed roles.

This workshop is part of the series "Statistics for the Public Good - Infrastructure for Decision Making, Research and Discourse". We recommend registering for all workshops of the series.
