Abstract: The JRC is the technical and scientific leader of the INFORM model, and responsible for methodological improvements, and their implementation. This publication describe the INFORM methodological and technical improvements implemented by JRC in the 2017. On despite the indicators have been selected on be base of their reliability, consistency continuity and completeness, most of the them don’t cover all the countries for all the year. This results in a significant number of missing values, irregularly distributed among countries, time and indicators. This report describes an innovative approach for predicting missing values using advanced statistical technics. We also present the IT developments in support to the INFORM model, including the web platform for managing the INFORM Subnational models and the improvements in the API.
