Home Office Official statistics are published independently as part of the code of practice for official statistics.
Many of our key statistical outputs are ‘national statistics’ and subject to assessment by the UK Statistics Authority. This means they must meet certain criteria. This includes being:
- fit for purpose
- methodologically sound
- politically independent
- transparently produced
For other official statistics, the code represents statistical best practice.
We publish the following information to explain how we comply with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics (implementing the Statistics and Registration Act 2007):
- Home Office statement of compliance with the code of practice for official statistics
- Home Office statement of compliance on its statistical release practice
- Home Office statement of administrative sources
- publication dates for the Home Office’s national statistics outputs are pre-announced on the UK Statistics Authority’s Publication Hub Release Calendar
- access to early drafts for quality assurance purposes and pre-release access to the finalised publications: latest editions (you can access these with each individual publication)
All Home Office statistics publications contain contact details. For further information about the implementation of the code of practice, please email the Head of Profession for Statistics, 5th floor Peel building, 2 Marsham Street, London SW1P 4DF
