All statistics produced by Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs for Northern Ireland (DAERA) are designated as 'official statistics' and a subset of these are designated as 'National Statistics'. As such, they are produced in line with the three pillars and associated principles set out in the UK Statistics Authority's Code of Practice for Statistics.
The DAERA Statistics Charter and Pre-release Access Statement set out how DAERA applies the Code of Practice for Statistics and the Pre-release Access to Official Statistics Order (Northern Ireland) 2009 to the wide range of DAERA statistics.
