Statistics User Forum

last person joined: 24 days ago 

The Statistics User Forum (SUF), supported by the Office for National Statistics, aims to be the strategic voice of users of official statistics. The Forum acts as an umbrella organisation for user groups, each of which covers a particular area across the spectrum 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.

    Speaker: Becky Tinsley, ONS
     
    The Office for National Statistics are looking beyond the next census in 2021 to the possibility of putting together a census based on linking together administrative data held by the Government.
     
    We're calling this an Administrative Data Census. Our main goal is to produce as many census-type statistics as possible. We're doing this by combining administrative and survey data, and comparing them with the outputs from the 2021 Census. To demonstrate our progress in reaching this goal, we have established a series of 'Research Outputs' which also demonstrate new opportunities from such an approach. 
     
    Since publishing our first Research Outputs on the size of the population in 2015, we have produced estimates of income from PAYE and benefits data, estimates for the number of occupied addresses (households) and research on ethnicity, mothers' income and household size. Our aim is to continue increasing the depth, breadth and detail of these Research Outputs each year.
     
    We also publish an annual assessment that assesses our progress towards an Administrative Data Census based on five high level criteria. A key part of this is whether the approach is acceptable to stakeholders.
     
    This presentation will summarise the research that we have done so far, and provide some insight into our future plans. 
     
    Followed by Q&A
