Assessment of statistics currently being undertaken by the Authority
The UK Statistics Authority has a statutory responsibility under the provisions of the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007, to assess whether its Code of Practice has been complied with in relation to any official statistics. "Meeting users' needs" is at the heart of the Code, and an important part of our assessment of statistics.
We are currently assessing the statistics listed below and, as part of this process, we will be contacting a range of bodies and individuals with an interest in these statistics - users, suppliers and other stakeholders. If you have an interest in these statistics but are not contacted by us directly, we would still be very interested in your views.
If you would like to give us feedback on any of the statistics we are assessing, click on the relevant Assessment Topic below for more information about the scope of the assessment and how to provide your views.
