Methods & Quality

The availability of sound methodological advice and the use of appropriate methodologies in statistical processes are vital to National Statistics by bringing about an improvement in the quality of the statistics and the overall level of services. Methodologists work closely with the individual areas of the office, providing support and advice.

The focus here is mainly on the work of the Methods and Quality and Social Survey Methodology Divisions within the Office for National Statistics and on work that cuts across statistical themes. Work carried out by other Departments is described under the themes to which they relate.
