The Office for Statistics Regulation is exploring the quality and public value of adult social care statistics in the United Kingdom. This report presents the findings for Wales.
Adult social care can affect and improve the lives of many people. Society has changed greatly over the last few decades, so it is important to understand more about how social care is currently delivered and how this might need to change in the future. This report explores the current situation in relation to adult social care statistics in Wales, and examines the extent to which the statistics are meeting users’ needs. It identifies steps Welsh Government should take to address users’ concerns and drive up both the quality and value of the statistics.
We will maintain contact with Welsh Government as they work to resolve the issues affecting these statistics. We will also engage further with users of the statistics to ensure that planned improvements meet their needs.
We will publish reports detailing the findings for England and Scotland in Autumn 2019.
