Author Info

  • Matthew Barnes

    (UK Office for National Statistics)


We describe the use of Stata in the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS). We give examples of projects Stata has been used for that have fed into UK official statistics. In addition we show some of the longer term research under way at ONS that is using Stata to analyse linked business data sets. Results from such work are fed into the evidence base for government policy. Primarily we discuss work in the Economic Analysis and Satellite Accounts Division of the Economic Statistics Directorate within ONS.
