Departmental Statistics

Volume 457: debated on Friday 23 February 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how much his Department spent on statistics relating to the work of his Department in each of the last five years. (107265)

There is no consistent definition of the term “statistics relating to the work of the department” and no centrally held information on either the volume or costs of statistics published each year on this basis.

Estimates for the annual costs of National Statistics are contained in the relevant National Statistics annual report and accounts, which are available on the National Statistics website at:

The last year these were produced was 2004-05.
