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.

    About us



    The RSS Official Statistics Section committee arranges a programme of meetings on official statistics as well as contributing to the RSS annual conference. The Section Committee's work also helps support the RSS' National Statistics Advisory Group (where discussion of UK policy for official statistics takes place).




    The aims and objectives of the Section are:

    1. To provide a forum for discussing the collection, quality, dissemination, analysis, and interpretation of official statistics, including methods and findings.
      2. To organise regular activities (working jointly with other sections of the RSS where possible) to bring together  producers and a wide range of users of official statistics.
      3. The programme of meetings is designed particularly for the following audiences:
    • Statisticians working in areas related to official statistics.
    • Researchers who carry out empirical research using official statistics.
    • Users of results of official statistics, for example in the public, private, voluntary and academic sectors, politics and the media.
