The majority of Government Statistical Service (GSS) statisticians in the Ministry of Defence (MOD) work in Defence Statistics and within Defence Economics. They are spread across five sites in the south of England, to maximise co-location with a wide range of customers. They have two principal roles:
- to provide statistical advice and research to underpin decision making, policy development and evaluation within MOD; and
- to contribute to the department’s accountability for its activities through the publication of official statistics on Defence, and by answering Parliamentary Questions (PQs), Freedom of Information requests (FOIs) and other requests for information.
