Day 3 Jean Monnet Chair SAMPLEU Workshop – 10 May 2018

The third and the last day of the Workshop on “Small Area Methods and living conditions indicators in European poverty studies in the era of data deluge and Big data” was opened by a Keynote of Prof. Luigi Biggeri, Emeritus Professor of University of Florence. He stressed the importance of  local purchasing power parities in order to correctly compare the poverty indicators and he presented the main methods in order to compute sub-national spatial price indexes and the challenges of using big data. The third day of the Workshop hosted a session about the actual results and the future plan of the Project Makswell. During the final panel discussion the participants came to the conclusion that in the era of Big data new challenges have arisen in the study of poverty and living conditions at local level with Small Area Estimation Methods and there is the need to work together to face them.
