Abstract

More than four years into the coalition, an interesting picture of “austerity statistics” is emerging. Deciding which statistics might be superfluous involves debates about what official statistics should be measuring and why and for whom they are prepared. This in turn raises question for the role of traditional statistical and social-scientific expertise in government, writes Alex Fenton.
