Statistics User Forum

last person joined: 16 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.

    Dear SUF community,

    The attached paper on increasing the use and usefulness of official statistics has been sent to the National Statistician and will be included in the RSS's submission to the PACAC inquiry.

    A longer version of the paper is here.

    My thanks to all who contributed to the paper, either directly or through issues raised at SUF meetings.

    I trust you agree it reflects the current position on user engagement. We will of course continue to track progress towards a more strategic and wide-ranging approach at future SUF meetings.
