Department for Culture Media and Sport
We produce a small set of official statistics outputs.
Much of the research and statistics relevant to our areas of responsibility is produced outside the department - see research links.
The DCMS Official Statistics Catalogue lists 'official statistics' produced by the DCMS and our Crown/Non-Crown bodies that are designated 'official statistics producers' under the Statistics and Registration Services Act 2007.
The Official Statistics Publication Timetable lists publication dates for these statistics, month by month to August 2013.
A list of Crown/Non-Crown bodies included under the Act can be found on the UK Statistics Authority website.
These statistics are produced according to the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.
The review of our Arms Length Bodies has implications for some of the Official Statistics produced by these bodies. We are recording the impact of these closures and mergers throughout 2011 on our changes to Arms Length Bodies’ statistics page.
The DCMS Statement of Compliance (PDF 220kb) gives details of our policies and strategies that ensure that we are fully compliant with the UK Statistics Authority Code of Practice for Official statistics (2009). These include our policies on revisions, data management, user engagement and complaints.
The DCMS Statement of Administrative Sources lists the administrative/management sources that are being used or potentially could be used in the future in the production of official statistics:
DCMS Plan to Develop Administrative Data Sources (PDF 72kb). DCMS' plans to develop our administrative sources are outlined here.
DCMS Statistical Work Plan 2012/13 (PDF 178kb). The work plan for the year April 2012 – March 2013 has been developed to meet the needs of users of our statistics and services, including DCMS policy and analysis colleagues, other Government Departments, ALBs and wider users.
