Current and Future Assessments

Last updated on Monday 22 February 2021

Assessments review how well a set of statistics is meeting users’ needs, and the extent to which users feel consulted by the statistical producers about the statistics produced.

We contact a range of bodies and individuals with an interest in the particular set of statistics – users, suppliers and other stakeholders. If we have not contacted you directly, we would still be very interested in your views. This page lists the statistics about which we would welcome your feedback.
