Statistical publications and data

NHS Digital publishes Official Statistics, produced under the Code of Practice for Official Statistics. This helps make sure that our statistics are produced independently and are trustworthy, high quality and of public value. Some of our releases have 'National Statistics' status - this is awarded by the UK Statistics Authority only to publications with the highest standards of Code compliance, including the value they add to public decisions and debate. Our official publications cover a wide range of topics from GP earnings to the number of school children who have taken drugs.

In line with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics we make our  administrative sources public.


Information about how our statistics are produced are included within each publication.

We also publish any changes to the ways data is collected or interpreted for our publications.
