Integrated Data Warehouse (IDWH)

Description
Intro

Integrated Data Warehouse (IDWH) is the unique database containing statistics on Moscow and other Russian regions equipped with modern data processing tools that was launched in 2014. One of the main goals of IDWH creation was changing the culture of interaction between different federal and local authorities regarding data exchange and analysis. IDWH saves time of professionals who are preparing analytical reports and briefs as there is no need to request data from various authorities. IDWH also promotes the culture of openness and transparency as a wide range of stakeholders can use it for monitoring socio-economic development of their cities and communities.

Description

IDWH was created with the following purposes: • Faster statistics search, in particular on the SDGs implementation in Moscow • Data analysis facilitation • User-friendly data visualization • More efficient decision-making process support

Contribution to SDG Implementation

IDWH contains many indicators used for assessing Sustainable Development Goals attainment at the level of regions and cities. Moscow is participating in the OECD Program on a Territorial Approach to the SDGs as a pilot region. IDWH substantially facilitated search of relevant data and contributed to the assessment of SDGs attainment in Moscow. In 2020 IDWH was translated in English to increase data availability for international audience. The same year a work on a special platform with indicators related to the SDGs was launched. It is expected to be released in Russian and English in March 2021.

Implementation methodologies

The IDWH is operated by a team of professionals in economy, statistics and IT at the Moscow Аnalytical Center and is placed at the Moscow data center. It contains information from more than 20 federal and regional sources (State Statistics Service, Tax Service, Ministry of Internal Affairs, EMERCOM, State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography Service, Customs Service, Civil Registry Office, Central Bank, Ministry of Finance, Treasury and others) that is updated on a daily basis.

Results

IDWH contains a wide range of indicators on cities and regions development, social inclusion and gender equality. Every user can monitor analyze and compare these indicators in regional dimension. Easy access to this data supports more efficient decision-making process, including in the areas of human settlements development, gender equality and social inclusion promotion.

Factors and Constraints

IDWH is now applied in a few Russian regions. Our goal is to spread it in all Russian regions.

Sustainability and replicability

IDWH is currently used for assessing the quality of life in different dimensions in Russian cities and regions, covering both developing and developed communities. Its innovative solutions of data storage and analysis can be used in both developing and developed countries.
