Public Confidence in Official Statistics (PCIOS) is a survey of adults in Great Britain. It gathers people’s views on some important sources of data that are used to inform public policy making. This includes things like the census, national crime figures, and data on COVID-19 case numbers. We are interested in whether you are aware of these statistics and how trustworthy you think they are. The survey is conducted by NatCen Social Research on behalf of the UK Statistics Authority (UKSA). We are currently inviting people to take part in a new online version of this survey.
