Detail of outcome
We published our response to this consultation on 19 December 2019.
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) plans to discontinue the annual abstract of statistics publication. This is primarily to save resource and to allow us to focus on higher priority work. Benefit uprating information contained in previous abstract of statistics publications will continue to be available on GOV.UK. Data relating to inflation, prices and earnings is available on the Office for National Statistics website.
Your response to the questionnaire will help us understand the way our statistics are used and what users consider important. They will help determine whether or not DWP is right to discontinue the publication.
Return your completed questionnaire to firstname.lastname@example.org, or if you would prefer to talk to the lead statistician for the series, call Alan Gibson on 0191 216 2804.
We plan to publish a response to the questionnaire later in 2019.
