Designation can be broadly interpreted to mean that the statistics:

  • meet identified user needs

  • are produced according to sound methods
  • 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.
