Consultation description

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) publishes a wide range of personnel statistics. The main purpose of these statistics is to measure the performance of the MOD against government and Parliament targets, and also to inform general debate in government, Parliament and the wider public. Our mission is to produce high quality statistics, analysis and advice to help the United Kingdom make better decisions.

Following an internal review of content we are seeking further user views on proposals for the cessation or reduced frequency of some of these statistics. Further details on the proposed changes and process can be found in the consultation document.
