This page was published in May 2024 and was updated throughout the pre-election period. It outlines the work OSR undertook during the General Election 2024. This page is no longer updated.

For statistics to serve the public good, they should support democratic debate. This is particularly important during a general election campaign, when statistics play a role in informing decisions made by the electorate. OSR has an important role in promoting and safeguarding the use of statistics in public debate. You can read more about our role during a general election in this blog post.

This page brings together our new and existing guidance to help users navigate statistical claims surrounding an election and to support those working with statistics in upholding the Code of Practice for Statistics.
