Governance of prices statistics

This review considered matters relating to the governance arrangements and structures supporting the production of consumer price statistics by the Office for National Statistics, to ensure that these statistics best meet the needs of users in future.

The review was led by Professor Sir Adrian Smith, the Authority’s Deputy Chair with responsibility for ONS. The review report was published on 12 February 2014.

The final report and terms of reference are published as downloadable files on the right-hand side of this page.

It is expected that some of the review’s recommendations, such as the establishment of new advisory panels, will be implemented once the the Review of the Range of Prices Statistics has reported.
