Detail

This notice sets out the policy that the Department for Communities and Local Government will follow in revising official statistics. This is a requirement of principle 2 of the code of practice for official statistics on impartiality and objectivity.

DCLG aims to avoid the need for unscheduled revisions to publications unless they are absolutely necessary and put systems and processes in place to minimise the number of revisions.
