Cessations and Changes to Scope of Official Statistics: Guidance for Heads of Profession
The National Statistician has agreed that the GSS Professional Team will no longer centrally collect information about the cessation or change of scope of official statistics, nor will the team centrally monitor statistical consultations.
The Head of Profession, as the local representative of the National Statistician within a department, is responsible for deciding who to notify and when / whether to escalate any proposed change of scope or cessation proposal to the National Statistician (usually via the Good Practice Team) or the Office for Statistics Regulation.
