Going Local with a World Class Data Infrastrucure: Enabling SDMX for Research Support

Presenter 1
Rob Grim
Tilburg University

At Tilburg University tools are needed to support the workflows of researchers. This paper reports on the use of SDMX to build the World Taxation Indicators portal. The project aims to fill in data gaps that limit research on taxation and to enhance the visibility of taxation research methods and concepts. SDMX is used to capture and register both metadata and research data that are collected in addition to data that are publicly avaialble. An SDMX registry is used to populate a metadata repository. An SDMX repository is used to store the taxation indicators and the time series data that are collected by a macro economic research group. SDMX was chosen as the preferred technology as this standard interoperates with the existing infrastructure for statistical data exchange and can be used for cross-disciplinary research suppport. The CARDS project (Controlled Access to Research Data Storage) project was granted by the SURFfoundation and ran from January to December 2011.
