Centre for International Migration and Admin Data Census, ONS- Kerry Gadsdon
Discussant: Madeleine Sumption (Migration Observatory)
About the Event:
Office for National Statistics (ONS) is transforming the way we produce population and migration statistics, to better meet the needs of our users. Working in partnership across the Government Statistical Service (GSS), we are progressing a programme of work to put administrative data at the core of our evidence on international migration (UK) and on population (England and Wales) by 2020.
Join us at this free interactive event, hosted by the Royal Statistical Society’s Official Statistics section in association with the Migration Statistics User Forum, where you can find out more about our latest research and give us your feedback on our developments and future plans.
Together we’ll discuss the following themes:
• User needs: what do users of our statistics need to know about the population and how it changes over time?
• Concepts and definitions: what concepts should ONS statistics measure? What additional or alternative definitions would support you in better understanding population and patterns of migration?
• Data sources: what data sources can we use to measure population and migration?
• Methods: what methods can we use to analyse administrative data?
• Outputs: what outputs do we need to produce? What aspects of quality (timeliness, frequency, coherence, relevance, accuracy, accessibility and interpretability) are most important to you?
