SCB pilot data upload
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Make a pilot upload of some of the CC0 data from SCB.

@Eric_Luth_WMSE and me looked at the suggestions they sent us. Indicator 8.5.2, unemployment, is a good example, as there are many data points, split by gender, in the statistics database, but only one on Wikidata.

Example of an employment graph for a country with multiple values.

All databases published by SCB (on Wikidata so far), including Q107492537. Now we can use it in references (stated in)

Event Timeline

The data can be downloaded from here https://www.statistikdatabasen.scb.se/pxweb/sv/ssd/START__AM__AM0401__AM0401A/NAKUBefolkning2Ar

Assume we want to be to replicate the diagram "Arbetslösa 16-64 år Andel i procent av kvinnor, män" in https://www.scb.se/hitta-statistik/temaomraden/agenda-2030/mal-8/?showAllContentLinks=True#140044

Then the relevant parameters to get the data are
tabellinnehåll → procent + felmarginal procent
kön → män + kvinnor + totalt
ålder → totalt 16-64 år
arbetskraftstillhörighet → arbetslösa
år → all available. Earliest is 1970, just like in the diagram. Felmarginal is only available since 2005.

The result can be downloaded as CSV.

Looks like some WD items have been created for the different parts of Statistikdatabasen: https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?search=Statistikdatabasen&title=Special%3ASearch&fulltext=Search&ns0=1&ns120=1, so we can start by making one for the labor market database too.

Added the data for the whole population from 1970 to 2020.

Now we have a graph for Sweden.

A graph can be made on Wikipedia using the data from Wikidata.
