Abstract

Since the early 1990s significant developments have occurred in official statistics, including new responsibilities, structures, collections, outputs and policies, and these will be described briefly for each of these separate but related roles. Similarly, many challenges remain relating mainly to effectiveness and cohesion which will be canvassed, together with the plans which are in hand to move the UK official statistical system forwards. The paper also comments on the international dimension of official statistics work, emphasizing in particular current developments with the European statistical system. The future for UK statistics is full of promise and challenges, and the author expresses his confidence that the Government Statistical Service will respond positively.
