Bulgaria is a leader for the work package for webscraping for enterprise characteristics, in which 9 member states participate. Within the meeting the countries presented what methods and means they have applied so far for webscraping data and processing and analyzing them. ‘BNSI started to work on this task 3 years ago as we used Italian and Polish software at first, but later we developed our own. The best assessment for the results achieved by us is that our partners chose us for a leader of the team for webscraping for enterprises from their own websites’, announced Dr. Galya Stateva, a state expert at General Methodology, Analysis and Coordination of Statistical Surveys Directorate.
In its overall activity the National statistical institute has always strived to be up-to-date with the modern tendencies of the world statistics, said Sergey Tsvetarsky, BNSI President and emphasized that the usage of Big data in the official statistics is one of the priorities of the Bulgarian statistics leadership and one of the greatest challenges in front of the statistics on a global scale.
