COINS CODING - A SEMINAR on 2 JULY

The Treasury recognises the complexity of the coding used in the COINS data that have been released. It is organising a short seminar on 2 July from 0930 to 1230 aimed at developers and others that are using the released data to generate systems or other on-line capabilities to allow the public to access the released data. The seminar will aim to provide further information on:

  • The differing data types and their usage;
  • “Key” fields for the purposes of building meaningful aggregates;
  • Building key/meaningful aggregates, with their associated field combinations and exclusions;
  • Difficulties associated with reconstructing exactly published information.

The seminar will also try to address specific issues pre-advised by those attending.

We would like to invite developers to request a place at the seminar by completing the form attached below, and sending it to coinsdatarelease@hmtreasury.gsi.gov.uk by Friday 25 June. Space at the seminar is limited, and if over-subscribed we will use the information provided to identify those to whom places will be offered. We will inform you if you have been allocated a place by Wednesday 30 June.
