About the event:

The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 sets out 7 well-being goals for Wales. In 2016 Welsh Government set 46 national indicators to track progress in achieving these goals. The Welsh Government are also required to set national milestones against the indicators that will help Ministers understand what progress is being made and whether we, as a nation, are on track. A consultation was launched in January to seek views on the criteria for setting milestones, and against which national indicators we should set milestones.  Once those indicators have been agreed, we will then involve experts, policymakers and stakeholders in setting the milestones. 
This workshop session of the RSS South Wales Local Group, led by Welsh Government’s Chief Statistician, is to begin a discussion with statisticians and other experts to consider the possible approaches and the conceptual issues around setting milestones. For example, we may consider:

•    What are the potential approaches, e.g absolute or relative measures and how should we decide which are most appropriate?
•    How do we set milestones for datasets with a very limited amount of baseline data?
•    How should statistical error be considered in setting milestones?
•    What other statistical methods can be used to inform the setting of milestones?
•    What time horizon would be most appropriate for setting national milestones?

Attendance is free and open to all, whether fellows of the RSS or not, but pre-registration is required.
