Strategy and Business Plan

The UK Statistics Authority’s Better Statistics Better Decisions is a five year strategy for the UK official statistics system which sets out our aims, priorities, mission and values.

The Authority’s Business Plan outlines how this Strategy supports professional oversight of the UK system of official statistics and exclusive responsibility for the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

The Authority reports on progress against the Strategy in its Annual Report.

Separately and independently, the Director General for Regulation reports on progress of the Authority’s regulatory function, the Office for Statistics Regulation.
