Code of Practice – Protocol 1:User engagement - practices

  • Identify users. Document their statistical needs, and their wishes in terms of engagement.

  • Make users aware of how they can find the information they need.

  • Take account of users’ views on the presentation of statistics, and associated commentary, datasets and metadata.

  • Provide users with information about the quality of statistics, including any statistical biases.

  • Involve users in the evaluation of experimental statistics.

  • Seek feedback from users on their experiences of the statistical service they receive, data quality, and the format and timing of outputs. Review the feedback systematically.

  • Consult users before making changes that affect statistics (for example, to coverage, definitions, or methods) or publications.
