Details

The Code of Practice for Official Statistics requires all producers of official statistics to publish, in consultation with the National Statistician, a ‘Statement of Administrative Sources’ which lists:

  • the administrative systems currently used in the production of official statistics
  • procedures to be followed within the organisation to ensure that full account is taken of the implications for official statistics when changes to administrative systems are being contemplated
  • information on other administrative sources that are not currently used in the production of official statistics but have the potential to be so used
  • arrangements for providing statistical staff, whether inside the producer body or elsewhere, with access to administrative data for statistical purposes
  • arrangements for auditing the quality of administrative data used for statistical purposes.
  • arrangements for ensuring the security of statistical processes that draw on administrative data
