Centraal Bureau voor Statistiek - TBA (NL)


Het CBS maakt het mogelijk dat het maatschappelijk debat gevoerd kan worden op basis van betrouwbare statistische informatie.
In een samenleving waarin informatie explosief toeneemt, is het vrij kunnen beschikken over betrouwbare en integrale data cruciaal. Het CBS levert als hét statistisch bureau van Nederland met betrouwbare statistische informatie en data inzicht in maatschappelijke vraagstukken.
Bij het CBS werken mensen met diverse achtergronden nauw samen. Wat iedereen gemeen heeft is de focus op onderzoeksresultaten van de allerbeste kwaliteit.

Op het gebied van meten met sensoren is veel vooruitgang geboekt. Meten met sensoren maakt het mogelijk om de kwaliteit van data te verbeteren en de lastendruk voor respondenten te verlagen.

 

Ole Mussmann is werkzaam bij het CBS als ICT-onderzoeker. Hij is met name gespecialiseerd in de mogelijkheden van het gebruik van sensoren om data mee te verzamelen voor de statistiek. ‘Alles wat we kunnen meten, hoeven we niet meer te vragen. En respondenten leren ook nog iets over hun gedrag of omgeving.’ Het CBS investeert in het verzamelen van data met apps en smart devices. Leefomstandigheden, verplaatsingen, tijdsbesteding kunnen we zo beter in kaart brengen, en vermindert de inspanning voor respondenten.

 

Hoe zie jij de dataverzameling van de toekomst? Welke data ben je bereid te delen en wat verwacht je in ruil daarvoor? Praat mee over sensoren, apps en privacy!

Maak kennis met het ons en ontdek welke carrièremogelijkheden het CBS te bieden heeft.
Je bent van harte welkom.
