We are eager to contribute positively to a fairer society and recognise the importance of our statistics in the UK wide debate on equality. We aspire to provide a range of statistics that will allow for a great understanding of UK society, such as: age, disability, marriage, civil partnership, pregnancy, maternity, race, religion or belief, gender reassignment and sexual orientation.
We are always searching for new ways to improve and connect accessibly with the users of our data and with our many partners. It is through these great relationships and value based conversations that we believe we will succeed in meeting our 10-year vision.
We currently have four diversity action plans in place for 2014/15; Representation of Women at Senior Levels, Disability, Part time working, Ethnicity.
