23rd GSS Methodology Symposium

Call for abstracts

The 23rd GSS Methodology Symposium will take place on Wednesday 18 July 2018 at the Westminster Conference Centre, 1 Victoria Street, London.

Better Statistics, Better Decisions through Innovation

In its Innovative perspective, the Strategy for UK Statistics challenged us to deliver measurable benefits from continuous improvement and a spirit of curiosity. We should anticipate new opportunities and respond to unmet statistical needs using innovative, effective and efficient methods.

As the Strategy passes its half way mark, we can share work from across the GSS at the GSS Methodology Symposium, reflecting on progress so far. This may be unlocking value through better use of data, improving the statistical methods we use, or rethinking our data collection methods. These may be part of a larger programme of development, or an agile response to an urgent requirement.

Send your abstracts to methodology@ons.gov.uk, using the attached template, by 30 April. If you’d like to talk through an idea, feel free to contact me on the same address, or on 020 7592 8643
