Use Insolvency Service Official Statistics? Tell The Service what you think

News Release issued by the COI News Distribution Service on 26 July 2010

The Insolvency Service has today (Monday 26 July 2010) launched an exercise seeking the views of stakeholders and others who use Official Statistics, such as the “Quarterly insolvency statistics”, it produces.

The aim of the Insolvency Service’ user engagement exercise is to ensure the scope, presentation and dissemination of the statistics meets the requirements and needs of users, a key principal within the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.

Commenting on the exercise Stephen Speed, Chief Executive of The Insolvency Service, said:

“It is important to us as an organisation that we produce statistics which are both informative and easy to interpret. I hope that users of our Official Statistics will take this opportunity to let us know how they can be improved.”

The statistical user engagement exercise can be found at
