Scotstat committees

The Scottish Government consults users and providers of the statistics which relate to the Economy via the Scottish Economic Statistics Consultants Groups (SESCG).

There is also a sub-committee concerned solely with the development and use of Input-Output tables - the Input-Output Statistics Expert Users Group.

UKSA Assessment

Economic Statistics produced by the Scottish Government have been independently assessed by the United Kingdom Statistics Authority. These assessments ensure that the statistics meet user needs, are produced, managed and disseminated to high standards and are explained well.


Supporting documents

The UK Statistics Authority's Code of Practice for Official Statistics requires that each Government Department publish a series of documents in support of the eight principles and three protocols contained in the code.
