Senior Researcher Jessica West will attend the the IARIW-CIGI conference November 2–3 in Waterloo.
The International Association for Research in Income and Wealth (IARIW), established in 1947, organizes conferences on topics related to income and wealth throughout the world, generally in partnership with national statistical offices. In addition to its biennial General Conference, the IARIW also organizes two smaller special conferences, with a regional or topic/theme dimension in non-General Conference years.
The IARIW is partnering with the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), an independent, non-partisan think tank, to hold a conference on the valuation of data. The IARIW-CIGI conference will take place November 2–3, 2023, at the CIGI Campus in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
The purpose of this conference is to push the boundaries of new knowledge on the valuation of data, bringing together experts and researchers from various fields to explore innovative approaches and insights. The conference will feature 19 papers that will advance the research in data valuation, covering topics that will drive transformative impact in the field and shape the future of data valuation practices.
The measurement of the value of data is a topic of interest to many IARIW members. It is also part of the agenda on the current System of National Accounts (SNA) update to be finalized in 2025. Research from the conference can potentially be used for the SNA update.
