Inclusive Data Taskforce report: Leaving no one behind – How can we be more inclusive in our data?

The Inclusive Data Taskforce has now been concluded. The work laid out in the Taskforce’s Report is now being taken forward by the ONS Centre for Equalities and Inclusion. To contact us about this work please email

In October 2020, the National Statistician invited a diverse group of senior academics and civil society leaders with wide ranging expertise across equalities topics, methodologies, geographies, and data ethics, to form an independent Taskforce, chaired by Dame Moira Gibb. The purpose of the taskforce was to develop recommendations on how best to make a step-change in the inclusivity of UK data and evidence.

Below you can access the Executive Summary of the report of the Inclusive Data Taskforce, the National Statistician’s response and future work programme, and the main findings and recommendations report in English and Welsh. Additionally, the supporting evidence gathered during the consultation period, and easy read booklets with the summary findings follow.
