A New "Data Culture" - If one defines «data culture» as the connection between the moment statistical information is produced and the moment it is used at a theoretical and practical level, one can identify the concept’s two main dimensions: the quantity of statistics used for social information and the totality of organizational, technological and methodological changes that characterize the production of statistical services over a certain period of time. Analyzing its history from the Seventies to today, it is possible to outline the changes that led to a «new data culture», which generates consequences both for producers and users of statistics: social researchers first and foremost, but the general public as well.
