Staff Members of Xicheng District Bureau of Statistics Use Big Data to Combat Coronavirus Epidemic
Data is used to help curb the coronavirus epidemic. To fight against the epidemic, Xicheng District Bureau of Statistics and its Economic and Social Survey Office make use of big data analytics technology and big data mining algorithms to support the analysis of the epidemic situation, the deployment of epidemic prevention and control, and the epidemic monitoring of floating population.
Data collation is the basis of the epidemic prevention work. Accurate inspection of people requires accurate data. Supported by the back-end database of Xicheng District Bureau of Statistics, the data group uses its expertise to establish an information management system matching address information with sub-districts and even communities.The system can batch-process data by means of the information technology, which will improve work efficiency, and relieve community workers’ pressure of checking address information off.
There are many such anti-epidemic data groups in Xicheng District Bureau of Statistics and its Economic and Social Survey Office.They analyze and monitor areas that are key to Xicheng District’s economy and people’s livelihoods, such as epidemic situation in Xicheng District, regional price changes, and public opinion and request on people’s livelihood, which will provide decision-making basis for combating the epidemic.
At present, there are nearly 200 price-monitoring points in Xicheng District. Xicheng District Bureau of Statistics and its Economic and Social Survey Office send staff members to conduct market supply-and-demand surveys and daily price fluctuation monitoring on major supermarkets, pharmacies, shopping malls and restaurants in Xicheng District by on-site visit, by call and via WeChat. They monitor the supply and prices of daily necessities, especially protective supplies such as masks, medical alcohol, and disinfectant. And they also visit or call major shops, supermarkets and pharmacies to know the market supply and demand of protective supplies and epidemic prevention supplies.
