DATA INTEGRATION: A GENERAL OVERVIEW Welcome and introduction by CUSSB Director – Prof. Clelia Di Serio, Vita-Salute S. Raffaele University Prof. Pier Luigi Conti – Dipartimento di Scienze Statistiche,Sapienza Università di Roma
Abstract The increasing need of statistical information, the increasing cost of ad hoc statistical surveys with a decreasing participation rate, and the increasing number of sources of information, are common today’s problems. A promising response is to integrate data from different sources into a unique, synthetic data-file containing all necessary information. Data integration plays an important role in data gathering process, with serious consequences in data usage.
