- Big data; statistics; opportunities
- The era of large data will change the way we understand and form statistical information. To store, integrate, process and analyze massive amounts of data can be viewed as a new data analysis method. This kind of intrinsic nature based on data relations determines the inevitable relationship between large data and statistics. Big data provides both opportunities and challenges for the development of statistics. The opportunities are reflected in: the improvement of statistical quality, the decline in statistical costs, and the expansion of the field of statistical action. The challenges are reflected in: the standard of large amounts of samples to be adjusted, the sample selection criteria and form to be re-determined, the statistical software to be upgraded and developed.
