The Authority’s assessment function examines the extent of compliance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics. The first assessment report was published in July 2009 and by March 2011 we had produced over 1001 . Under the legislation that created the Statistics Authority, we expect to produce 150 or so further reports to complete the initial programme of reviewing all existing National Statistics. Whilst assessment is the core of the Authority’s scrutiny role, there are many other outputs including Monitoring Reports and Briefs, correspondence and statements.
