Social Media Policy

Our accounts are managed by the UK Statistics Authority (UKSA) communications team on behalf of the UKSA and the Office for Statistics Regulation (OSR).


We occasionally use hashtags so that our tweets are picked up by people discussing a particular topic. Use of these hashtags does not mean that the UKSA or OSR endorses any views or description of events implied by the hashtags.

Twitter Engagement

If you follow us on Twitter, we will not automatically follow you back. Being followed, retweeted and liked by our account on Twitter does not imply endorsement by either the UKSA or the OSR.


We update and monitor our social media accounts during UK office hours, Monday to Friday. They may occasionally be unavailable and we are not responsible for lack of service due to downtime.

We welcome feedback and ideas, but we do not reply individually to all the messages we receive. If you want to:

  • ask about our work;
  • raise an issue about the production, publication or use of official statistics;
  • contact us about the quality, good practice or comprehensiveness of official statistics; or
  • request that we investigate other matters relating to official statistics;

please emailĀ
