Statistics User Forum

last person joined: 3 hours 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.

  • Proposed Changes to ONS Birth Statistics

    The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is running a consultation on changes that we are planning to make to the way that birth statistics are published from the 2017 data year onwards.

    We plan to make four explorable datasets available for live births; the specification for these and consequential proposed changes to our annual publication tables are detailed in the consultation.

    We would appreciate and welcome your feedback on these proposals and will take account of all feedback received before making any changes.

    For more information please email vsob@ons.gsi.gov.uk
