Our reflections on the state of official statistics

In July 2021, we published a report that sets out the Office for Statistics Regulation’s view on the current state of government statistics, based on our work in 2020 and 2021 so far.

In this report, we set out our view on the current state of statistics and data produced by public bodies. We highlight examples of statistical producers doing things well which we would like to see continue into the future, and the improvements we would like to see to ensure statistics and data better serve society’s needs. The five themes focused on are: responsive and agile, timeliness, collaboration and data sharing, communication and presentation, transparency and trustworthiness. We also reflect on progress on the areas raised in last year’s report.
