About Statistics & Research

How we use your data for statistics and research

We produce a wide range of official statistics and research, some of which use data about individuals. We also use non-personal information collected by ourselves and other organisations.

In addition to data protection legislation, our use of data for statistical purposes is also managed in accordance with the Code of Practice for Statistics (external link). Principle T6 of the Code covers data governance.

These documents explain how we use personal data collected by Welsh Government for statistics and research purposes, and who to contact if you have any concerns.
