Official statistics published by the Home Office are based on two main sources, data gathered from statistical surveys, and data extracted from its own and from other organisations’ administrative or management systems. By using data which are already available within administrative or management systems, we are able to limit the overall burden placed on data providers, and also avoid the costs of mounting dedicated data collection exercises.
