"The Danish format and tool for the preservation of statistical data", Ann-Kristin Egeland and Christian Babiarz Madsen from the Danish National Archives, 19th January at 14 (CET).

Colleagues from the Danish National Archives have specified a new preservation format for statistical data based on the SIARD.DK preservation format for databases. In this presentation, they will show the Danish tool ASTA which is used for transferring data from statistical files like SAS, SPSS, Stata and R to a SIP in the specified preservation format. ASTA is also a validation tool for testing this SIP and an access tool for converting the statistical data in the preservation format back to a statistical file format. The tool and specifications for the preservation format are available for download on the website of the Danish National Archives in both Danish and English. They will also share their experiences developing the tool ASTA and challenges they and the data creators meet when using this tool for ingest, preservation and access. By 2023 The Danish National Archives will implement the E-ARK preservation formats both the CSIP and the updated SIARD 2.2 specification, and they expect that ASTA will be further developed to adapt to this new format as well.
