Office for National Statistics

The UK's largest independent producer of official statistics and the recognised national statistical institute of the UK

Newport, Wales








Mission & purpose

We’re the Office for National Statistics (ONS), the UK’s largest independent producer of official statistics. The statistics we gather make a real difference, helping people make important decisions for the nation and our communities on everything from health and education to the environment and the cost of living. We’re responsible for the census that happens every ten years and share information and analysis about some of the UK’s most topical issues. Based on feedback from colleagues, the ONS has been named by Glassdoor as one of the best places to work in the UK in 2023. We’re the first Civil Service department to make it into the top 50.
