The landscape of economic statistics in the UK is changing, with more new and innovative data available than ever before. There have been multiple economic shocks in the last few years which have brought increased interest in economic statistics. The regulatory landscape has also changed: the UK’s departure from the EU means that the role of the European statistical office (Eurostat) in verifying the quality of UK statistics will come to an end in due course. As the UK’s independent regulator of statistics, we are developing a ‘Spotlight on Quality: Assuring Confidence in Economic Statistics’ programme, a key component of which will be a series of quality-focused assessments. We are building on our years of experience of assessing statistics against our Code of Practice for Statistics to ensure that users can have confidence in the quality of economic statistics in the UK.
