The Office for National Statistics (ONS) are consulting on proposed changes to how they collect and publish statistics and would welcome your views.

The changes that the ONS are proposing will enable them to reduce the costs of their current operations and reinvest these savings to transform their digital and data capability. Making the changes will also help the ONS to continue to produce the high quality statistics needed for informed decision making.

In addition to the link above, and in order to include as many stakeholders as possible, a Word version of the consultation document has been created, should you wish to share it with colleagues and/or respond by email.

The consultation closes on Monday 8 February 2016.

If you have any questions about taking part, please email
