Many national, regional and local governments, as well as other organizations in- and outside of the public sector, collect numeric data and aggregate this data into statistics. There is a need to publish these statistics in a standardized, machine-readable way on the Web, so that they can be freely integrated and reused in consuming applications.
In this document, the W3C Government Linked Data Working Group presents use cases and lessons supporting a recommendation of the RDF Data Cube Vocabulary. We describe case studies of existing deployments of an earlier version of the Data Cube Vocabulary as well as other possible use cases that would benefit from using the vocabulary. In particular, we identify benefits and challenges in using a vocabulary for representing statistics. Also, we derive lessons that can be used for future work on the vocabulary as well as for useful tools complementing the vocabulary.
