About National Statistics

Statistics labelled as 'National Statistics' must meet certain criteria. They should, for example, be fit for purpose, methodologically sound, politically independent and transparently produced.

All National Statistics are produced in accordance with the UK Statistics Authority's Code of Practice for Official Statistics and under the Statistics and Registration Services Act 2007.
