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.

Fresh Focus on Use - The Long Read version

This paper has been prepared by the Royal Statistical Society and the Statistics User Forum, to make the case for the Office for National Statistics (ONS) establishing and implementing a strategy for improving user engagement across the Government Statistical Service (GSS). It draws on many discussions at SUF and elsewhere; we also gratefully acknowledge the input of a number of former members of the GSS and the UKSA.

A short version of this paper will be included in the RSS's submission to the PACAC inquiry into UKSA and has been sent to the National Statistician.

Comments are of course welcome and we will continue to track progress towards a more strategic approach to use and user engagement at future SUF meetings.

Paul Allin
Chair, SUF
