CTG response – Programme for reducing published Official Statistics

*Update: HMRC has announced that it is planning to make some changes to the suite of HMRC official statistics publications, partly in response to the Office for Statistics Regulation’s report on the quality of HMRC official statistics and partly due to increasing demands for new statistics, for example on coronavirus support schemes. It has set out its plans in this consultation. It contains proposals to either discontinue, reduce frequency or content or consolidate a variety of publications. This does not include changes to the charity statistics, which is welcome news.

CTG previously provided a short response to HMRC’s consultation on the programme for reducing published Official Statistics.
