The Inclusive Data Taskforce (IDTF) published its report and recommendations in September 2021. In January 2022 a far-reaching Implementation Plan was published covering the period 2022 to 2023 through to the end of 2024 to 2025, including details of current and planned work across the UK intended to make data and evidence more inclusive.

The IDTF organised their recommendations under eight overarching Inclusive Data Principles which collectively provided an ambitious blueprint for creating a step-change in inclusivity of UK data and evidence. This review takes a high-level look at progress made in 2022 to 2023 across the commitments published in the Implementation Plan, identifying key achievements, where more progress is needed, and key activities for 2023 to 2024.

Implementation of the Inclusive Data Taskforce recommendations has far-reaching consequences for data collection, statistics and analysis across the UK statistical system, with the aim of embedding inclusivity as standard practice across the UK statistical landscape in a sustainable way.
