ONS Publication Policy on ad hoc media requests

ONS has adopted a new process (26.7 Kb Pdf) for dealing with bespoke, ad-hoc data requests from media organisations and journalists. When ONS now responds to an ad hoc data request from the media, that response will be published simultaneously on the ONS website.

ONS has adopted this process in line with the release practices protocol of the National Statistics Code of Practice, which states that 'National Statistics should be made equally available to all, at the same time, subject to the limited exceptions described in this protocol.
