Definition:

A Statistical Classification is a set of Categories represented by Classification Items which may be assigned to one or more variables registered in statistical surveys or administrative files, and used in the production and dissemination of statistics. The Categories at each Level of the classification structure must be mutually exclusive and jointly exhaustive of all objects/units in the population of interest. (Source: GSIM StatisticalClassification)

Explanatory Notes:

A Classification Item represents a Category at a certain Level within a Statistical Classification. The Categories are defined with reference to one or more characteristics of a particular universe of units of observation. A Statistical Classification may have a flat, linear structure or may be hierarchically structured, such that all Categories at lower Levels are sub-Categories of Categories at the next Level up.

Property:

Name | Cardinality | Datatype | Description |
---|---|---|---|

releaseDate | 0..1 | Date the Statistical Classification was released | |

validDates | 0..1 | The date the statistical classification enters production use and the date on which the Statistical Classification was superseded by a successor version or otherwise ceased to be valid. (Source: GSIM Statistical Classification) | |

isCurrent | 0..1 | Indicates if the Statistical Classification is currently valid. | |

isFloating | 0..1 | Indicates if the Statistical Classification is a floating classification. In a floating statistical classification, a validity period should be defined for all Classification Items which will allow the display of the item structure and content at different points of time. (Source: GSIM StatisticalClassification/Floating | |

changeFromBase | 0..1 | Describes the relationship between the variant and its base Statistical Classification, including regroupings, aggregations added and extensions. (Source: GSIM StatisticalClassification/Changes from base Statistical Classification) | |

purposeOfVariant | 0..1 | If the Statistical Classification is a variant, notes the specific purpose for which it was developed. (Source: GSIM StatisticalClassification/Purpose of variant) | |

copyright | 0..n | Copyright of the statistical classification. | |

updateChanges | 0..n | Summary description of changes which have occurred since the most recent classification version or classification update came into force. | |

availableLanguage | 0..n | A list of languages in which the Statistical Classification is available. Supports the indication of multiple languages within a single property. Supports use of codes defined by the RFC 1766. | |

displayLabel | 0..n | A structured display label providing a fully human readable display for the identification of the object. Supports the use of multiple languages and structured text. | |

rationale | 0..1 | Explanation of the reasons some decision was made or some object exists. Supports the use of multiple languages and structured text. | |

usage | 0..1 | Explanation of the ways in which some decision or object is employed. Supports the use of multiple languages and structured text. | |

contains | 0..n | Allows for the identification of the member and optionally provides an index for the member within an ordered array |

Relationship:

Name | Target Object | Description | Source cardinality | Target cardinality | Relationship type |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

isMaintainedBy | Organization, agency, or group within an agency responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the statistical classification. | 0..n | 0..n | Neither | |

distributedAs | Description and link to a publication, including print, PDF, HTML and other electronic formats, in which the Statistical Classification has been published. This is similar to dcat:Distribution. | 0..n | 0..n | Aggregation | |

variantOf | Statistical Classification on which the current variant is based, and any subsequent versions of that Statistical Classification to which it is also applicable.
| 0..n | 0..1 | Neither | |

isIndexedBy | ClassificationIndex(es) related to the StatisticalClassification. | 0..n | 0..n | Neither | |

predecessor | Statistical Classification superseded by the actual Statistical Classification (for those Statistical Classifications that are versions or updates).
| 0..n | 0..n | Neither | |

successor | Statistical Classification that supersedes the actual Statistical Classification (for those Statistical Classifications that are versions or updates), | 0..n | 0..n | Neither | |

realizes | Collection class realized by this class | 0..n | 1..1 | Neither | |

isStructuredBy | A complex structure, hierarchical, for a ClassificationItem. Restricted to single structure. | 0..n | 0..1 | Neither |
