The Royal Statistical Society’s Statistics User Forum (SUF) 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.

  • Changes to Divorces in England and Wales 2015 being released 21 June 2017 by ONS

    Under the Children and Families Act 2014, divorcing couples are no longer required to provide information on children as part of the divorce process. From the data received by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) it is not possible to determine whether a couple were childless or whether they chose not to provide information on children.

    Analyses show that the average number of children per couple has declined notably since 2013, a likely consequence of many couples choosing not to provide children information. Consequently children information will no longer be included within our divorces release; figures based on incomplete data would be misleading.

    If you require any further information please contact Vital Statistics Outputs Branch at ONS ( or telephone: +44 (0)1329 444110).
