Challenge data

The SemStats 2016 data challenge is about statistical classifications. Statistical classifications are very important statistical metadata, because they form a highly organized global taxonomy of statistical concepts and because they are related by formal correspondences, which allows to link together data sets that use different classifications.

The challenge data and detailed documentation are available from this page.
