The Survey Methodology Bulletin informs statisticians in the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and the wider Government Statistical Service (GSS) about ONS survey methodology work.
It is produced by ONS, and ONS staff are encouraged to write short articles about methodological projects or issues of general interest.
Articles in the bulletin are not professionally refereed, as this would considerably increase the time and effort to produce the bulletin: they are working papers and should be viewed as such.
The bulletin is published twice a year and is free to ONS and GSS staff, as well as external people with an interest in survey methodology.
