The Statistics User Forum (SUF), supported by the Office for National Statistics, aims to be the strategic voice of users of official statistics.

Through the Forum we enable open and constructive dialogue between users and producers of official statistics and encourage communication across the user community.

ONS Forum - The ageing population, 19th April

  • 1.  ONS Forum - The ageing population, 19th April

    Dear SUF colleagues,

    I mentioned at SUF last week that I would post the details of this forthcoming ONS event, in case anyone wishes to attend. If you are interested, please contact ONS asap - I've just seen that their deadline was last Friday! Trust that they are still open to late-comers.

    As the Deputy National Statistician for Population and Public Policy at ONS, I would like to invite you and your colleagues to attend an event where we will explore policy implications of the ageing population. In particular, I want to work with you to understand the burning policy questions that the ageing population poses, and how better data can help answer them.

    At the event a mixture of ONS and guest speakers will give their thoughts on the policy questions that need to be answered, and how new data sources could shed further light on the impact of an ageing population. I will be joined by Paul Johnson, Director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies, who will present on the economic impacts of population ageing, while other speakers will explore the public service and societal implications, before taking your questions in a Q&A panel.

    The event will take place on 19th April from 14:00 – 16:30 at the QEIICentre, Westminster, SW1P 3EE. I will be joined by senior colleagues from academia, civil society, trade associations and government.

    I would be delighted if you could join me, so together we can improve the evidence base on the ageing population.

    Spaces are limited so I would be grateful if you could confirm your attendance by replying to by Friday 16th March.

    Yours Sincerely
