Since the start of the  community of practice on socio-economic data , one of the first things that emerged from the discussions was the recognition that any form of standardization in the socio-economic domain was conspicuously absent. In an effort to redress the challenges facing socio-economic data reuse and data interoperability, three working groups emerged. The working group 100Q focused on identifying key indicators and related questions that are commonly used and could be used as a standard approach to ensure data sets are comparable over time and space. The working group SociO! focused on the development of a socio-economic ontology with accepted standardized terms to be used in controlled vocabularies linked to socio-economic data sets. The working group OIMS focused on the development of a flexible and extensible, ontology-agnostic, human-intelligible and machine-readable metadata schema to accompany socio-economic data sets.

Recently the work of 100Q was completed with the report “Towards a core approach for cross-sectional farm household survey data collection: a tiered setup for quantifying key farm and livelihood indicators” [link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WLg_67GnVQY18MqHSlR9tXwse-7KenAW/view]
