North American Data Documentation Initiative Conference (NADDI)

The North American Data Documentation Initiative Conference (NADDI) is an opportunity for those using metadata standards and those interested in learning more to come together and learn from each other. Modeled on the successful European DDI Conference, NADDI 2018 will be a two day conference (April 5-6) with invited and contributed presentations, and should be of interest to both researchers and data professionals in the official statistics, social sciences and other disciplines. A full day of training sessions will precede the conference (April 4th).

Conference Theme: Benefits of Describing National Statistics with Common Standards.


Data Documentation Initiative (DDI)

The Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) is an open metadata standard for describing data and specifying data collection activities. DDI’s principle goal is making research metadata machine-actionable. The specification can document and manage different stages of data lifecycles, such as conceptualization, collection, processing, analysis, distribution, discovery, repurposing, and archiving.
