Good Practice Team

Good Practice Team Here to Help

The Good Practice Team identifies, promotes and shares good practice across the Government Statistical Service (GSS). We provide training, guidance, support and advice about the production, dissemination and use of official statistics and run support networks where GSS colleagues can come together to share expertise.We also provide advice regarding compliance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.

Anyone who works with official statistics can use our advice service to discuss Code compliance in day to day work or during a UK Statistics Authority Assessment. The team also deals with breaches of the Code of Practice. For more information on what to do if you think you are in breach of the Code, please contact us.

We manage the GSS website, bringing together information on activity across the GSS, and providing a community where GSS members can discuss statistical topics of interest. We have drawn together some Good Practice Resources, particularly on the topics of communicating statistics and engaging with users. We hope you find them helpful. If you are keen to get something showcased or promoted via the website, or if you have any suggestions for improving the site, please get in touch.
