Summary and References

The recoding of data is a common requirement in a statistical system and typically, in any given statistical system, many recoding use cases will be required.

This module has demonstrated the capabilities of SDMX and FMR to support the recoding of data via an interactive user interface as well as via programmatic web services which support process automation.

This module provides detailed coverage of the transformation capabilities of SDMX and FMR but nevertheless, only scratches the surface in demonstrating all possible use cases and how to implement them. However, you should be left with a strong foundation from which you can now solve your specific recoding challenges.
