UK Statistics Authority Independent Assessment of Statistics about Cancer Survival in England

The Office for Statistics Regulation (OSR) has a statutory role to monitor the production of official statistics in the UK. We are currently assessing the extent to which statistics about Cancer Survival in England produced by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and Public Health England (PHE) meet the professional standards set out in the statutory Code of Practice for Statistics.
