Περίληψη. Linked Open Data technology is an emerging way of making structured data available on the Web. This project aims to develop a generic methodology for publishing statistical datasets, mainly stored in tabular formats (eg, csv and excel files) and relational databases, as LOD. We build on top of existing publishing tools, statistical vocabularies and LOD storage technologies to ease the process of publishing these data. Our efforts focus on census data collected during Greece’s 2011 Census Survey and provided by the Hellenic Statistical Authority. We have developed a platform through which the Greek Census Data are converted, interlinked and published.
