Detail of outcome
A new publication has been produced, provisionally entitled the ‘Annual manning report: analysis by rank and age’ is now called ‘UK armed forces annual personnel report’.
The TSP 8, 9 and 19 publications have ceased.
Detail of feedback received
The proposal, to replace three annual National Statistics publications (TSP 8, TSP 9 and TSP 19) with a single annual publication analysing the same aspects of service manpower (age and rank) but containing more commentary, with fewer detailed tables has received positive feedback and support.
Defence Analytical Services and Advice (DASA) sought feedback on proposals to change the presentation of statistics on UK armed forces manpower currently published as National Statistics in its annual tri-service publications (TSPs).
