EURO SDMX REGISTRY
SDMX is a global solution (and an ISO standard, 17369:2013) to model statistical data and metadata. The principle is that by following the SDMX standard, data and metadata reporting, exchange and dissemination becomes more efficient and can be automatised. The SDMX standard is supported and owned by seven international organisations, including Eurostat.
The SDMX standard defines several objects or artefacts that can be used to model and automate data and metadata exchange (the Information Model), as well as specifications of Registries that allow for the storage and retrieval of these objects.
The Euro SDMX Registry is Eurostat's implementation of an SDMX Registry. The Euro SDMX Registry is used to store all SDMX artefacts needed to exchange and interpret statistical data and metadata exchanged in the ESS.
The Euro SDMX Registry can be used to manage and store several SDMX artefacts. The information contained in the tool can be accessed by means of :
For more information please consult the corresponding Euro SDMX Registry user guides.
Below are listed the most common set of artefacts as well as stakeholders present in the reporting and / or collection of data and metadata.
Major SDMX artefacts
ESS data and metadata providers and domain managers can use the Registry to search and download all the relevant SDMX artefacts for their domain.
Organisations that would like use SDMX for their own data collection, dissemination or metadata management can also create their own instance of the application by downloading it and installing it on their premises.
Access to the tool
The Euro-SDMX Registry can be easily accessed.
Public SDMX artefacts can be consulted and downloaded without being registered. To view and / or download private SDMX artefacts, an active EU Login 2-Factor Authentication enabled account as well as permission to access that information are required.
If you would like to request access to private artefacts, please send an email to ESTAT-SUPPORT-SDMX@ec.europa.eu
The Euro-SDMX Registry software can be downloaded.
