Distributed database techniques and the Internet provide producers of statistics with a means to publish their data and metadata widely and make them available to a variety of users. Data matching to a user query and data access as well as data harmonization are some of the problems that should be solved. Intelligence is required in various stages of query answering and data matching. Moreover, the breadth and distributed nature of the Internet urge for a distributed approach. Agents seem to be the means by which both intelligence and distributed processing can be achieved. This paper presents a distributed approach for answering queries on statistical data that exist over the Internet using a multi-agent framework.
