[holding answer 16 January 2007]: A list of the titles of all of the National Statistics produced by each Department and Agency was placed in the Library of the House on 8 January 2007 to accompany the Second Reading of the Statistics and Registration Bill. An equivalent list was also placed on the National Statistics website. Theses list can be accessed using the following URL:

In addition to National Statistics, the Home Office publishes a wide range of other numerical information in a variety of forms including other data produced from the management and administration of the Department and in research reports. We are currently working to review this data, however there is not currently a complete centrally held list of all information published by the Home Office.
