Bibliothekssystematik des Instituts für Statistik und Mathematik

Die Zielsetzung der Einrichtung ist es Doktorand/innen und Mitarbeiter/innen der WU, die in der angewandt-empirischen Forschung tätig sind, kompetente Beratung zur Verwendung statistischer Konzepte und Methoden zu bieten. Vor allem soll das Angebot des Beratungsservice darauf abzielen, die WissenschaftlerInnen zu befähigen, ihre empirischen Studien und die Datenauswertung auf hohem wissenschaftlichen Niveau korrekt und selbstständig durchführen zu können.

The aim of the institution is to provide doctoral students and WU staff who are involved in applied empirical research with competent advice on the use of statistical concepts and methods. Above all, the offer of the consulting service is aimed at enabling the scientists to carry out their empirical studies and the data evaluation on a high scientific level correctly and independently.

Statistical Terminology

"It is not unusual for students to forget important concepts learned in an earlier course. This set of definitions is intended to stir memories of those wonderful times when you were learning statistics and econometrics. It is not intended to replace a statistics course but to provide you with a handy guide to the definition of some important terms in the statistical tools used by economists."

Activity Classification for the Time Use Survey

"The Activity Classification for the Time Use Survey (ACTUS) was developed to assist in the study of time use in the New Zealand context. This classification was designed to meet the requirements of the Statistics New Zealand Time Use Survey 2009/10. ACTUS is based on the activity classification used for the Statistics New Zealand Time Use Survey 1998/99. Changes to this classification have been made to reflect the needs of users and to improve international comparability with time use surveys in Australia, Canada, the United States of America, and the United Kingdom.

Experimental Factor Ontology

"The Experimental Factor Ontology (EFO) provides a systematic description of many experimental variables available in EBI databases, and for external projects such as the NHGRI GWAS catalogue. It combines parts of several biological ontologies, such as anatomy, disease and chemical compounds. The scope of EFO is to support the annotation, analysis and visualization of data handled by the EBI Functional Genomics Team. We also add terms for external users when requested."

Activity Coding List for Harmonised European Time Use Surveys

"The Harmonised European Time Use (HETUS) activity coding list is based on international practices and previous classifications of daily activities used in Europe. The coding system and index were tested and revised on the basis of time use pilot surveys in 18 countries. The final system was completed in 2000 and revised in 2008. The European activity coding list allows several groupings of activities depending on the purpose of the analysis."

International Classification of Activities for Time-Use Statistics

"The classification seeks to provide the basis on which data from time-use surveys would be coded and presented in categories that would be meaningful in the assessment of national labour inputs into production of all goods and all types of services; in the compilation of household satellite accounts; and in examining trends in the broad uses of time."

Statistics Canada Thesaurus

"Le Thésaurus est un outil d'indexage et de recherche documentaire bilingue et entièrement structuré, conforme aux normes et aux conventions internationales. Il se compose de descripteurs et de non-descripteurs, accompagnés de leurs relations hiérarchiques, associatives et normatives. La portée du Thésaurus évolue constamment et reflète les sujets qui ont été traités à un moment ou à un autre dans les sources de Statistique Canada. Les termes ont été tirés de divers produits de Statistique Canada, y compris de publications, de bases de données et de sources connexes.

"The Statistics Canada Thesaurus was developed to provide subject access to Statistics Canada's information resources. The Thesaurus is a bilingual, fully structured, indexing and information retrieval tool which conforms to internationally accepted standards and conventions for thesaurus construction. It consists of descriptors and non-descriptors, accompanied by their hierarchical, associative and prescriptive relationships. The scope of the Thesaurus is dynamic and reflects subjects that have been addresssed at one time or another in Statistics Canada sources.
