The GSS strategy

The Better Statistics, Better Decisions strategy (pdf, 1MB) published in 2015 sets out the collective mission of the Government Statistical Service (GSS) between 2015 and 2020: to provide high quality statistics, analysis and advice to help Britain make better decisions.

It sets out a vision for statistics where data is available real-time, we are digital by default and the quality of our advice and insight earns us a seat at the table where the most important decisions are made.

In 2017, three years after the launch of the strategy, the Better Statistics, Better Decisions: Three Years On (pdf, 1MB) publication outlines the progress the GSS has made towards this mission.
