ONS has reviewed the Public Sector Finance (PSF) Statistics to take forward and implement the recommendations from the UK Statistics Authority’s report on the Asset Purchase Facility of June 2014.
The Review of Public Sector Finance Statistics has focused on two key areas:
- improving the presentation of the statistics to ensure they are well presented and easily understood;
- reviewing the methodology and guidance which underpins the “ex-measures” of Public Sector Net Debt and Borrowing which were developed in response to the financial crisis to ensure they remain robust, statistically coherent and future-proofed.
ONS has now reached preliminary conclusions from this process and is consulting users on the outcome from this work.
