The annual conference on the use of R in official statistics will take place on the premises of Statistics Austria May 6-8 2020. We are excited to announce an unconference "use of R in official statistics"" on the two days before the uRos2020 conference, so on 4th and 5th of May.
The idea behind the event (similar to http://unconf17.ropensci.org/ for R in general) to bring together useRs from the area of official statistics to work for two days on concrete projects where enhancements would benefit many institutes, organisation,... .
Similar to the idea of the awesome official statistics software list, this should complement an abstract top-down approach such as the common statistical production architecture with fast bottom-up solutions.
If you are interested in participating, please contact us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a short summary of your motivation and your experience in R.
Call for ideas
If you have an idea what should be implemented, please write us or even better clone this repo, add a small markdown file describing your idea to the doc folder in this repo and send a pull request to us. The ideas should be useful for producers or users of official statistics. To give a hint what kind of proposals we are aiming for, please see the implemented projects from the unconfUROS2018.
