Developing the prototype longitudinal business database

Abstract

  • Written by Richard Fabling, Julia Gretton and Claire Powell
  • Paper presented at Statistics Research Institute (SRI) seminar, Daejeon, Republic of Korea and at the International Association for Official Statistics (IAOS) conference, Shanghai, People's Republic of China
  • First published 19 May 2008

This paper describes Statistics New Zealand’s development of the prototype Longitudinal Business Database (LBD). The LBD is the result of a two-year feasibility study to integrate longitudinal administrative and survey data, at the enterprise level, that will meet users’ needs to better understand the dynamics of enterprise performance without increasing respondent load. The LBD has been used to produce a selection of prototype official statistics (examples of these are included in this paper). These outputs demonstrate the benefits of integrating unit-record data from survey and administrative sources. The paper covers current and future uses of the LBD, its construction, the legislative environment, the challenges faced and the solutions adopted.
