The RSS and OSR will be holding a joint event on 30 November to discuss what makes a good code of practice for statistics – we’re looking for RSS members to attend and share their views.
The Office for Statistics Regulation (OSR) has launched a review of the Code of Practice for Statistics. For the first stage, OSR is gathering evidence to inform their recommendation to the UK Statistics Authority Board on whether the Code should be updated.
As part of the consultation, the RSS and OSR have arranged an open event to identify and debate key issues that might feature in the recommendation. What does the Code seek to do? How effective is it? What, if anything, needs to change?
This will be an in-person event at the RSS London offices at 4pm on Thursday 30 November. We are inviting members to submit proposals for 2-minute contributions to the discussion. If you would like to speak at the event, please complete the short form to outline what you want to say.
We regret that, on this occasion, there will not be the facility to join on-line, but we welcome short written contributions (max 200 words) to be read out during the meeting. These can be submitted using the same form.
Register interest in contributing or submit a 200 word statement here.
The discussion will be written up and published on the RSS and OSR websites. We also encourage individuals to respond to the OSR’s call for evidence.
