## Ontologies

### govstat .owl (Ontology)

A version of the GovStat Ontology developed by M. Pattuelli. Pattuelli, M.C., (2003), “The GovStat Ontology: Technical Report”. The GovStat Project, Integration Design Laboratory, School of Information and Library Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The ontology has been extended to by M. Fox to support the definition of Population's. Version 0.2, 2 Jun 2017 - removed sum_of_var, mean_of_var, std_of_var and replaced with parameter_of_var Version 0.1, 17 Jan 2017: - Added Sum as a subclass of Parameter - Added Cardinality as subclass of Parameter - Added object property parameter_of_var to link Parameter to Variable - Added sum_of_var as subproperty of parameter_of_var to link Sum to Variable - Added mean_of_var as subproperty of parameter_of_var to link Mean to Variable being summed - Added std_of_var as subproperty of parameter_of_var to link Standard_deviation to Variable - Added object property description_of as inverse of is_described_by - Added sum_of property as subproperty of is_described_by to link Sum to Population - Added std_of property as subproperty of is_described_by to link Standard_Deviation to Population - Added mean_of property as subproperty of is_described_by to link Mean to Population - Added Sample_sum and Sample_cardinality
