6.3 eSTATISTIK.core file declaration

The report system eSTATISTIK.core allows the transmisson of data in the XML standard format DatML/RAW.

DatML/RAW was developed for the statistical offices of the Länder and the Federation. It is an XML-based document format for collecting raw data of several surveys. This format is used for declarations via eSTATISTIK.core. CORE stands for Common Online Rawdata Entry and supports the automated production of the statistical raw data from the operational data of businesses and authorities, as well as the automatic transmission to the central internet-based data portal. Data transmission and registration are carried out via the eSTATISTIK.core declaration system.

All the information about the registration procedure, survey description, supply agreement and contact person is available under eSTATISTIK.core (only in the German language) available.

Please see the following documents for information for the file declaration and the codes you require for intra-Community trade declarations:

Before you can start transmitting declarations via eSTATISTIK.core, you will be requested to send us test file/s of data with a practical background and please label the test files as "XGTEST". Please note, that material numbers which already used to declare files in an other file-form, may not be used to identify files in the format DatML/RAW.

Also test files in the DatML/RAW-format must be send about the central data input from eSTATISTIK.core under (only in the German language). For that .Core-ID and .Core-Password are needed. If the access data are not present, you must request this data under (only in the German language).
