Details

We’ve published the DWP arrangements for pre-release access to statistics in the interests of openness and transparency.

Departments are required to publish this information by the Pre-release Access to Official Statistics Order 2008. They must publish details of the statistical releases to which the order applies, the job titles of everyone who has pre-release access and the organisations to which they belong.

There is more about our statistics on the Statistics at DWP page.
