Small Area Statistics - Flexible User Network

The Flexible User Network (FUN) has been created to allow the Scottish Government to engage with key users and stakeholders of local area statistics. The network will be made up of a 'core' group of users and data providers. As well as the core group, there will also be a larger correspondence group that we will consult with around open data technologies, geographic information systems (GIS) and bespoke user applications.
