The Presentation and Dissemination Committee has 3 sub groups
The Presentation and Dissemination Committee (PDC) is chaired by Julie Brown, the joint Head of profession at the Department for Transport. The membership includes senior statisticians in UK government departments and each department has a PDC representative or member.
PDC meets four times a year and has two main responsibilities.
- Developing and maintaining professional standards for presenting and disseminating official statistics.
- Ensuring accessibility of official statistics for all users (such as government, business and the public).
PDC is all about building capability, setting and raising standards, sharing best practice, encouraging innovation and celebrating success. Take a look at the minutes and actions from the PDC meeting in March 2017 to see some of the areas of interest to the committee.

The Presentation and Dissemination Symposium 2017 will be held in London on Friday 30 June. This year the theme is ‘communication with impact’ – the morning will see keynote speakers talking about how to present better for policy making; the afternoon will focus on communicating to the general public. To read about the 2016 symposium visit our Presentation and Dissemination 2016 page and see what that day was all about. Or, check out this ‘Storify’ summary.
