Subject: RSS Award for Excellence in Official Statistics: Deadline 24th May 2013
Message:

For the fourth time the RSS is running an award for excellence in official statistics. The aim is to reward and promote good practice in the field of official statistics, specifically focusing on meeting the needs of the wider user community.

If any member of the Forum or of an associated group would like to nominate any  statistical output you use or are aware of which meets this criteria, this would be most welcome and appropriate. The deadline is May 24th. 

Examples of what we are looking for are:

  • An excellent statistical release that is informative, clearly presented, and adds value to the published statistics;
  • an excellent or innovative way to communicate results that is clear and helpful to a wide array of users;
  • an excellent demonstration of gathering information on the requirements of a range of users, and using this information to shape outputs;
  • use of existing administrative data (either public or private) to respond to unmet needs, or to replace more expensive data collection processes;
  • an innovative statistical development.

Work should have been either carried out or essentially completed in 2012.

Details are at http://www.rss.org.uk/site/cms/contentviewarticle.asp?article=1116 from which an application form can be downloaded. 

Please could you circulate this round your group?
