International Relations

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is part of the Government Statistical Service (GSS) - the community of all civil servants working in the collection, production and communication of official statistics. The GSS is an active part of a global statistical community. This helps us to:

  • add value to our statistics by improving international comparability

  • improve the UK statistical system by sharing good practice

  • develop more efficient ways of statistical production through international coordination

  • meet the needs of our international users, such as the OECD, United Nations and the European Union, while minimising extra burdens on us and our data suppliers; and,

  • support the UK government's commitment to overseas development
