Producing official statistics

How official statistics are produced and published by the Scottish Government and other bodies.


We provide information and guidance on the governance arrangements and frameworks that we use to support the production and publication of official statistics by the Scottish Government and other bodies.

The Scottish Government produces and publishes official statistics in accordance with the UK Statistics Authority’s Code of Practice for Statistics, and other relevant guidance.

The Analysis Function guidance hub has details of relevant statistics policies and guidance. You can find more information about topics such as communicating statistics, quality, harmonisation, methodology and connected open government statistics.
