Regione Abruzzo makes data available for citizens, helps create statistical culture
MILAN, ITALY (Mar. 31, 2010) – The Statistical Infrastructure Office of Regione Abruzzo in Italy uses analytics software from SAS, the leader in business analytics, to manage information in its regional database for publication. Metrics on the region’s environment, health, population, census, and labor are managed by the office and published on the Web for easy access by citizens.
One of the objectives of the Statistical Infrastructure Office is to promote initiatives that improve Regione Abruzzo’s statistical culture. The Statistical Infrastructure Office, coordinated by Alfonso Graziani, used SAS® software to combine the cartography images, or maps, with statistics. Analyzing enriched data about the territory provides decision makers important insights into socioeconomic changes so they can formulate and evaluate policies for services and public functions.
“SAS allows efficient updating of information,” said Graziani. “Seeing the integrated statistical data with the cartographic maps is invaluable for decision making. In the future, this will include data from the census of 2010-2011.”
Accurate and timely information is helping Regione Abruzzo support the National Institute of Statistics, the main supplier of official statistical information in Italy. They publish data that captures the life of the country. Making its information accessible to the whole population is helping create a real statistics culture.
