Abstract


Colectica is software for managing statistical data. It is used by national statistical organizations, university research groups, and data collection agencies to provide well-documented data to researchers and the public. Colectica is built on open standards like DDI and GSIM, ensuring that information can be presented in numerous formats and shared among different organizations and tools.

In this session we will demonstrate new features added to Colectica in 2016, including:

  • Colectica Datasets: a new application to add rich metadata directly to statistical data files, and to convert statistical data files to open formats
  • Colectica Questionnaires: a new, streamlined survey design application including tighter integration with computer assisted interviewing systems like Blaise and Lime Survey
  • Import formats: SAS and SAS catalog files
  • Colectica Portal: data lineage visualizations, allowing researchers to trace statistical data back to its source
  • Colectica Portal: Elasticsearch for fast, advanced queries
  • Colectica Portal: maintenant en français
