Designation can be broadly interpreted to mean that the statistics:
- meet identified user needs;

- are produced according to sound methods; and
- are managed impartially and objectively in the public interest.
Once statistics have been designated as National Statistics it is a statutory requirement that the Code of Practice shall continue to be observed.
