Update from Monday, May 4, 2020
PDH.stat has been migrated to a new, faster cloud server. The address is still the same: https://stats.pacificdata.org/
The application has been updated to include some new functionality and additional data has been added.
One of the most sought after products from SDD are population projections. These were all revised the end of 2019 and have just be added to PDH.stat. For example here you can see mid-year estimates/forecasts from 2015 to 2025 (estimates annotated with “E” and forecasts with “F”):
This is a “shared view” of the dataset, a link that you can easily send people, put in documents, add to social media etc. By then clicking on the dataset name (underlined in red) it loads the full PDH.stat Data Explorer if you would like to explore further.
We also have 5year age breakdowns. (note that the table layout can be customised, here showing 5year breakdowns by country from 2020-2025, but you could also group by age group)
For those of you who used the previous version of .stat you will notice that some of the bugs have been fixed, and unfortunately a few still remain. Anything you find please let us know and we can add to the bug list. Below are a few for reference.
Functionality you might find useful:
- Customise the layout of your table by changing column/row order etc
- Share the exact dataset view/layout you have selected. Select data which interests you, filter as appropriate etc and then click the share button and follow instructions.
- Download data as excel spreadsheet or CSV
- Last x periods filter doesn’t work. You can ignore this for the moment. What this will eventually do is take the most recent value for each row in a table. This will make it easy to compare for example most recent population figures (actual) across the pacific.
- [Fixed] Time period is not reloaded correctly when copy and pasting full PDH.stat Data Explorer URL. E.g This is the full link to the first population projections table shown above. If you paste this in your browser is should filter on data between 2015 and 2025, but unfortunately it reverts back to default dates.
The next big piece of work will be getting the updated list of National Minimum Development Indicators into PDH.stat. We are currently reviewing this indicator list and should have them finalised early May. Considering the indicators which have been chosen map to regional frameworks, we are confident that this makes them relevant. Over time, feedback from users will be taken into account so we can refine the list of indicators (as necessary).
