The UK Statistics Authority is holding an event on the Coherence and Accessibility of Official Statistics on Income and Earnings, taking place from 10.30am to 4.00pm, on Thursday 2 July 2015 in London.

This event will be hosted by Ed Humpherson, the Director General of Regulation and John Pullinger, the National Statistician, as part of our review into this area.

This review considers the way in which official statistics about income and earnings, and their components, are presented, with a particular focus on:

  • Coherence – the extent to which official statistics drawn from different sources, and about different components of income and earnings, complement one another; also, whether there are any significant gaps in the statistical picture.
  • Accessibility – the extent to which users of official statistics on income and earnings are able to find, understand and use the statistics; and whether related statistics are presented in ways that help users to understand the interrelationships.

We welcome a range of users to take part in this important discussion on the future landscape of income and earnings statistics and have speakers from the Resolution Foundation and the Nuffield Foundation, as well as presentations from statistics producers from the Government Statistical Service, about their recent and planned work to improve statistics in this area.

Places at the event are limited, if you wish to attend, please email authority.enquiries@statistics.gsi.gov.uk with your name, organisation, role and interest in income and earnings statistics by Friday 12 June.

Spaces will be allocated shortly after this.
