National Statistician’s response
We are pleased to publish the recent correspondence between Tony Dent of Better Statistics CIC and the National Statistician on the GSS User Engagement Strategy, as launched in February. As can be seen here, the final letter in the series confirms Sir Ian Diamond’s commitment to a wider debate on the subject of user engagement and we hope that publicising this exchange of letters will help spark that debate.
The correspondence was initiated by a letter from Mike Hughes, on behalf of the Royal Statistical Society’s National Statistics User Group, to Sir Ian Diamond and that letter and Sir Ian’s reply were recently published on the Statistics User Network Website. Meanwhile, the Statistics User Forum will be discussing this issue at the next meeting on 24th June and interested parties are invited to join the Stats User Network and register for that meeting by clicking here.
