Following the publication of our reports on adult Social Care statistics for England, Scotland and Wales, the Office for Statistics Regulation has published a summary report for Great Britain.

This report draws together the main findings from each of the three countries. We closed the project strand for Northern Ireland, following the publication of a letter in March 2019.

We spoke to a range of users of these statistics, as well as reviewing existing outputs. Given the devolved nature of adult social care, we looked at statistical issues in each of the four countries separately.

Today’s report highlights common challenges and frustrations, as well as good practice relating to adult social care. It concludes with our priorities for action that each of the three countries should take to improve adult social care data and statistics.
