One of the Statistics Authority's statutory functions is to monitor the production and publication of official statistics across the UK, from collection through to dissemination, and to report any concerns it may have about the quality, comprehensiveness or good practice in relation to official statistics.

The Statistics Authority can report its monitoring findings to the person responsible for those statistics, usually the relevant departmental minister or the relevant devolved administration, and the Authority may choose to publish those findings. This enables the Statistics Authority to either comment reactively to any statistical concerns brought to its attention or proactively, for example by developing its own programme of monitoring work to fulfil this duty. 

These pages provide links to those Monitoring Reports and Monitoring Reviews published by the Authority.
