Statistical database

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

statistical database is a database used for statistical analysis purposes. It is an OLAP (online analytical processing), instead of OLTP 
(online transaction processing) system. Modern decision, and classical statistical databases are often closer to the relational model than
 the multidimensional model commonly used in OLAP systems today.

Statistical databases typically contain parameter data and the measured data for these parameters. For example, parameter data consists
 of the different values for varying conditions in an experiment (e.g., temperature, time). The measured data (or variables) are the measurements
 taken in the experiment under these varying conditions.

Many statistical databases are sparse with many null or zero values. It is not uncommon for a statistical database to be 40% to 50% sparse.
 There are two options for dealing with the sparseness: (1) leave the null values in there and use compression techniques to squeeze them
 out or (2) remove the entries that only have null values.

Statistical databases often incorporate support for advanced statistical analysis techniques, such as correlations, which go beyond SQL
They also pose unique security concerns, which were the focus of much research, particularly in the late 1970s and early to mid-1980s.

"So many of our modern health problems stem from issues of abundance: fast food, 
car-friendly suburbs, and endless couch-borne entertainment.

The cure for these, according to the quantified-self cult of Silicon Valley, is more data! 
Just collect information about every step we take, every beat of our heart, every toss 
we take in our sleep, everything we eat and every drop we drink, and all will be revealed.

But what if the abundance of data, too, is part of the problem?"

WIPO Statistics

"We cooperate with intellectual property (IP) offices from around the world to provide our stakeholders 
with up-to-date IP statistics. We also publish statistical reports on worldwide IP activity and on the use 
of WIPO-administered treaties in the protection of IP rights internationally.

Reliable IP statistics are an important tool in understanding trends in business and technology and in 
the use of the IP system worldwide and across different countries.
Data information ↓

IP data published in these pages are taken from the WIPO Statistics Database. The database contains:

Data provided by national/regional IP offices for WIPO's Annual IP Data Survey. The data are collected 
at an aggregate level by various breakdowns (e.g. number of patent filings or grants by office and origin, etc.). 
A continuing effort is made to improve the quality and availability of IP statistics. It is difficult to obtain data 
for all IP offices with all possible breakdowns, however every effort is made to cover data for as many offices 
and countries as possible; and

Data compiled by WIPO during the application process of international filings through the Patent Cooperation 
Treaty, the Madrid System and the Hague System.

In addition, indicators of patent families and fields of technology are developed by WIPO based on data 
from the PATSTAT database, which is maintained by the European Patent Office.

IP data reported in these pages are based on the following concepts:

Country of origin: used to categorize IP data by resident (domestic) and non-resident (foreign). 
The residence of the first-named applicant (or inventor) recorded in the IP document 
(e.g. patent or trademark application) is used to classify IP data by country of origin.

Resident and non-resident: a resident IP filing refers to an application filed by an applicant at its national 
IP office. For example, an application filed by an applicant resident of Japan at the IP office of Japan is 
considered as a resident filing for Japan IP office data. Similarly, a non-resident filing refers to an IP 
application filed by an applicant at a foreign IP office. For example, an application filed at the IP office of 
China by an applicant residing in France is considered a non-resident filing for China IP office data. 
The IP grant (registration) data are based on the same concept.

 Filing and grant date: the IP filing data are based on the date of filing. The IP grant (registration) data are 
based on the date of grant (registration). The IP data by field of technology are based on the date of 
publication and the patent families data are based on the priority (or first filing) date."


Statistical data
IP statistics data center

"WIPO IP Statistics Data Center is an on-line service enabling access to WIPO’s statistical data. Users can 
select from a wide range of indicators and view or download data according to their needs. This service is 
intended to be a tool for IP professionals, researchers and policymakers worldwide.
IP statistical country profiles

Statistical country profiles provide information on patents, utility models, trademarks and industrial designs. 
They cover different dimensions of IP activity, including incoming and outgoing filings, the share of filings in 
different technological fields, total patents in force, and the use of international IP systems by applicants."

Economics of IP

IP protection has emerged as an important component of national economic policies. WIPO seeks to contribute 
to a better understanding of the economic effects of different IP policy choices. Find out more about the economics of IP.



"The journal aims to promote and communicate advances in big data research by providing a fast and high quality 
forum for researchers, practitioners and policy makers from the very many different communities working on, and 
with, this topic.

The journal will accept papers on foundational aspects in dealing with big data, as well as papers on specific 
Platforms and Technologies used to deal with big data. To promote Data Science and interdisciplinary collaboration 
between fields, and to showcase the benefits of data driven research, papers demonstrating applications of big data in 
domains as diverse as Geoscience, Social Web, Finance, e-Commerce, Health Care, Environment and Climate, Physics 
and Astronomy, Chemistry, life sciences and drug discovery, digital libraries and scientific publications, security and 
government will also be considered. Occasionally the journal may publish whitepapers on policies, standards and best

About Data for Research (DfR):

"Data for Research is a free service for researchers wishing to analyze content on JSTOR through a variety of lenses and 
perspectives. DfR enables researchers to find useful patterns, associations and unforeseen relationships in the body of 
research available in the journal and pamphlet archives on JSTOR. To this end we provide data sets of documents to 
researchers: OCR, metadata, Key Terms, N-grams and reference text.

JSTOR incorporates metadata and OCR text from many different sources. We work to mitigate any inconsistencies, 
but you may come across issues with datasets, such as duplicate OCR, missing OCR, or incomplete metadata. 
Please contact us if you encounter data issues.

Using the site:

Through a faceted interface, researchers can explore the entire JSTOR archive, quickly and easily defining content of 
interest through an iterative process of searching and results filtering. By creating a DfR account, you can download 
the metadata, word frequencies, citations, key terms, and N-grams of up to 1,000 documents. The interface operates on 
Boolean logic but should you find your query especially difficult to build, we’re happy to help."
