Details

The Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007 required the UK Statistics Authority to publish a Code of Practice for statistics. Only those statistics assessed as compliant with the code will be designated as National Statistics.

HM Treasury has made arrangements to implement the code when publishing statistics, set out in our standards and policies.
