Big Data Strategy 2018-2020

Big Data is the effect of the accelerating digitisation, which means that individuals as well as enterprises leave behind electronic footprints while performing a vast number of more or less standard and everyday actions. 

Statistics Denmark’s Strategy 2022 stipulates that an action plan for utilisation of Big Data must be prepared in the strategy period.

Statistics Denmark’s Big Data Strategy will focus mainly on the application of data in relation to existing statistics and on forming data partnerships with others for the purpose of improving existing sources for the official statistics.

This strategy contributes towards this and describes the strategic commitment to Big Data in the following ways: 

  • Experience with Big Data at Statistics Denmark.
  • Competences and competence development
  • The legal aspects
  • Partnerships
  • International cooperation
  • And how these efforts should be organised
