Academy Of Social Sciences Response To UK National Data Strategy Consultation 2020

17 January 2021

In September 2020, the UK government published a consultation on the UK’s National Data Strategy. Led by AcSS Council member Dame Jil Matheson, a former National Statistician, and working with some our Learned Society members and others, AcSS submitted a response in early December 2020. Because of the particular structure of the consultation questionnaire, which would have required reading the full consultation materials, we agreed to publish an ‘outward-facing’ version of the Academy of Social Science response.
