The Office for National Statistics is the UK’s largest independent producer of official statistics and its recognised national statistical institute. We are responsible for collecting and publishing statistics related to the economy, population and society at national, regional and local levels. We also conduct the census in England and Wales every 10 years.

The Data Science Campus was established within the Office for National Statistics (ONS) in 2017 to investigate the use of new data sources, including administrative data and big data for public good and  help build data science capability for the benefit of the UK and internationally.

The ONS co-lead the Data and Connectivity National Core Study with HDR UK.
