The single data list: gateway group report

This publication was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Report on the list of all datasets that local government is required to submit to central government.



The department set up a ‘gateway group’ in July 2012. It is responsible for ensuring that any new proposed data requirement is necessary, fully funded, places a minimal burden on local authorities and meets at least one of the 6 data principles before it can be added to the single data list.

This annual report outlines the work on the operation of the single data list gateway process and reviews of existing data.
