QUALITY STANDARDS AND UPDATES

As a manufacturer of international data, we know about the requirements for the data. Therefore, companies from all industries globally trust the quality of our data. We ensure these standards through strict and continuous quality controls as well as releasing annual updates.

WHY ARE DATA FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES / PROVIDERS USUALLY NOT COMPARABLE?

The bases of our data are primarily data of the respective statistical offices, with a relatively high quality of data and a predominantly international standardization of data collection and presentation. Disadvantages are the mostly country-specific, inhomogeneous data vintages and structures e.g. in different variable structures, territorial states and geographical levels. Geometrically different meaning that the borders between countries do not seamlessly match, leaving overlaps and gaps.

In simple terms, this means: Data from different sources are usually not directly comparable in terms of content and geometry.

HOW DOES MBI PROCESS THIS DATA?

With many years of experience in working large amounts of data sources, we consider ourselves to be experts in homogenizing national and international databases. For more than a decade, we have been working hand in hand with the statistical offices and government institutions worldwide, to ensure that we have the best data available for our products. We have an expert team of data scientist and data analysts based in Germany that process all the original data we collect and match these to our current geographical area boundaries. When processing the data and building products we ensure that the same file structures, formats, column titles, attribute naming, and uniform methodology is applied. This enables to ease in swapping our data files when doing analysis or planning in more than one country or even globally. We currently have over 200 different variables on multiple area boundary levels for almost every country in the world.
