Definition: Set of measures describing how a phenomenon is spread within some part of the 2D world.

Attributes

Definition: External object identifier of the spatial object.

Description: An external object identifier is a unique object identifier published by the responsible body, which may be used by external applications to reference the spatial object. The identifier is an identifier of the spatial object, not an identifier of the real-world phenomenon.

Multiplicity: 0...1

Valuetype: Identifier

Definition: The part of the 2D world the StatisticalDataDistribution describes.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: GM_Surface

Definition: When distribution is related to a subset of the population and not the population in its whole, the literal description of the way this subset was defined.EXAMPLE : A dataset can give the population distribution of the unemployed persons under 25. The variable will be “unemployedPopulation”, the measure a “count “ and the measurementUnit “person”. The only way to express that the distribution doesn’t cover the whole unemployed population would be to describe that situation in the Unviverse attribute.

Valuetype: PT_FreeText

Definition: The part of statistical knowledge the data refers to.

Description: EXAMPLES: Demography, activity, etc.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: PT_FreeText

Definition: The measure concerned by the distribution.

Description: EXAMPLE: Population by age and gender, households by size, etc.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: VariableValue

Definition: The description of the statistic measurement method.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: StatisticsMeasurementMethodValue

Definition: The unit of the measurement.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: UnitOfMeasure

Definition: The proportion of population of the area of interest that is not counted in any of its spatial components.

Description: EXAMPLE: This situation can occur when the total population of the area of interest is collected by some process (e.g. administrative register) but population in the spatial components of the area of interest by another process (e.g. estimation).

Multiplicity: 0...1

Valuetype: Number

Definition: The date or period the observation has been taken, the data was collected.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: TM_Period

Definition: The period when the data is supposed to give a picture of the area of interest.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: TM_Period

Definition: The period in which the data remains relevant.

Description: Outside this period the data will not be used and must be replaced by new data. In most cases this is forever and the 2nd date is left empty.

Multiplicity: 0...1

Valuetype: TM_Period

Definition: Date and time at which this version of the spatial object was inserted or changed in the spatial data set.

Multiplicity: 1

Stereotypes: voidable

Valuetype: DateTime

Definition: Date and time at which this version of the spatial object was superseded or retired in the spatial data set.

Multiplicity: 0...1

Stereotypes: voidable

Valuetype: DateTime

Definition: The status of the statistical data distribution.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: StatisticalDataStatusValue


Associated objects - Mandatory

Definition: The pieces of datum of the distribution.

Attributes

Definition: The value for the piece of datum.

Multiplicity: 0...1

Valuetype: Number

Definition: Some conventional string when value for the piece of datum ca
ot be provided: missing value, value hidden because of confidentiality.

Multiplicity: 0...1

Valuetype: SpecialValue

Definition: The proportion of population counted in the piece of datum but that ca
ot actually be physically located anywhere within the area of interest.EXAMPLE: This proportion will include homeless people who where given the address of the organisation that distributes social benefis to them.

Multiplicity: 0...1

Valuetype: Number

Definition: The proportion of population count that doesn’t follow the common rule for location. “Population” can be persons if persons are counted, dwellings if the StatisticalDatadistribution is about dwellings, etc.EXAMPLE : A statistical distribution of the people is supposed to have been produced after the people were located in the cadastral parcel they live in. For some incorrectness in the registers used, the actual location of the cadastral parcel was not found fro some of them and an estimated location was computed. The number of people in this case must be reported in the attribute.

Definition: Free style comment about the value.

Multiplicity: 0...1

Valuetype: PT_FreeText

Definition: A set of one-character encoded comments about the data.

Multiplicity: 0...1

Valuetype: PT_FreeText

Definition: The collection period of the statistical value. This period overrides the period specified in the associated statistical distribution.

Multiplicity: 0...1

Stereotypes: voidable

Valuetype: TM_Period

Definition: The status of the statistical data.

Note /* Either the value or the specialValue attribute shall be provided. */


Associated objects - Mandatory

Definition: The identification of what the piece of datum refers to in terms of geographic location or individual characteristics.

Multiplicity: 1

Name of the association: dimensions

Association definition: The part of the world the piece of datum refers to. Dimensions contains a description of the geographic location (2D dimension) together with possible additional dimensions when population counts are produced simultaneously for different individual characteristics.EXAMPLE: A simple population count for each part of the area of Dissemination will need only identification of these parts, while population count by gender will require and additional dimension (gender) to make a difference between the male and the female.

Associated objects - Optional

Definition: A classification used for a statistical distribution.

Description: This code list describes the classification of the provided statistical values. It is the composition of the classification items.

Multiplicity: 0..*

Name of the association: classification

Association definition: Additional classifications used to split a total value of the described phenomenon. The StatisticalDistribution object will provide actually several distributions, one for each item of the used classification.NB: When no classification is provided, the statistical value is the total population.
