UK Statistical Policy Landscape

  1. 1. The UK Statistical Policy Landscape Paul Askew This infographic presents and relates the key components of the UK's statistical policy landscape. The scope includes key bodies, legislation, policy, guidance, and key contextual factors and influences. It provides a single strategic and visual overview, illustrating the evolution, relationship and synthesis of those components over the last decade or so. It demonstrates the extent and development of the background rigour and governance in public data management, and the significant scale, complexity and recent pace of change.
