Our assessment process reviews how well a set of statistics is meeting users’ needs, and the extent to which users feel consulted by the statistical producers about the statistics produced.
During each assessment we contact a range of bodies and individuals with an interest in the particular set of statistics – users, suppliers and other stakeholders. If we have not contacted you directly, we would still be very interested in your views. This page lists the statistics about which we would welcome your feedback. We have reduced our programme during the middle of 2016 due to the transition from implementing the Business Plan for Monitoring and Assessment 2016-17 to the creation of the Office for Statistics Regulation which will result in a new programme of activities which will be announced in due course.
We welcome users’ views about any of the statistics covered by the assessments listed below. Please click on the relevant Assessment Topic for more information about the scope of the assessment and details about how to send us your views.
