Science, economics, statistics and research

Research and analysis is at the heart of good policymaking at Defra. It provides evidence for decision-making, helps us find new policy solutions and helps us to identify and tackle future issues.

This section of the website highlights the main areas of our research, as well as the work we do to ensure we use the right, highest quality evidence in the right way.
