"based on heuristic: Hellenic Statistical Authority"[edit]

Hey Laddo, there are almost 6.000 references based on heuristic (P887): Hellenic Statistical Authority (Q1275124) in use to source country (P17): Greece (Q41) claims, and it appears that you have added (most of) them some time back in 2015 (example item: Molos, Skyros (Q21540665); query for full list). Unfortunately, based on heuristic (P887) was not really supposed to be used like that, and I am right now trying to repair bad use of that property in references. Do you have an idea how these ~6.000 references could be improved?

My suggestion would be to create an item "Hellenic Statistical Authority database", and use it with stated in (P248) as that would be much cleaner. Any thoughts? Thanks and Regards, —MisterSynergy (talk) 14:04, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

@MisterSynergy: Agreed, I don't remember doing these changes but the correction you suggest is excellent. It was an improper use from my part, feel free to fix them as you see fit. -- LaddΩ chat ;) 17:43, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, I will soon start to work on this fix. Do you think that “Hellenic Statistical Authority database” (or plural “… databases”) would be the most appropriate title for the work of Hellenic Statistical Authority (Q1275124)? Browsing on the (English) website of the authority, I don’t find an unambiguous official name for their database. If there is no official one, it would be okay to use a descriptive title instead. —MisterSynergy (talk) 20:05, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
@MisterSynergy: Correct, it does not seem to have a precise name. I likely used this register, CSV format, back in 2015. I'm fine with Hellenic Statistical Authority databases, without capital on the last word. Not sure either how to link the two items: publisher (P123) or operator (P137) on one end, item operated (P121) on the other side? -- LaddΩ chat ;) 03:14, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
I now started with Hellenic Statistical Authority databases (Q55593217) using owned by (P127) and owner of (P1830), but the other options look fine as well. Any preferences on your side? —MisterSynergy (talk) 05:19, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
@MisterSynergy: I believe operator (P137) best describes the on-going relationship between a DB and the organisation maintaining it. Inverse property is item operated (P121). -- LaddΩ chat ;) 22:58, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
Changed, thanks. —MisterSynergy (talk) 09:43, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
