Annual Statistics of Scientific Procedures on Living Animals, Great Britain
I welcome your compliance check of the Annual Statistics of Scientific Procedures on Living Animals, Great Britain, which were last assessed against the Code of Practice in 2012. As a department we are committed to the transparency and credibility of statistics, and ensuring our regular publications maintain the high standards expected of National Statistics is an integral part of that.
The publication team have already begun establishing engagement with stakeholder groups, and we are reviewing the publication to identify where transparency, clarity and value can be improved upon. We will look to address your suggestions as part of our ongoing review.
Thank you for your acknowledgement of the innovations and improvements we have already made to the statistics. We plan to take forward further work in this area in addition to the comments above. We will provide further updates in this year’s release and user guidance to be published in the summer.
