Seeking Members for the Independent Statistics Users Group
COULD YOU PLAY A KEY ROLE HELPING TO ENSURE THE QUALITY, RELEVANCE AND INTEGRITY OF JERSEY’S STATISTICS?
We are looking to appoint 3 to 7 new Members to the independent Statistics Users Group (SUG).
You will help oversee the quality, relevance and integrity of Jersey’s public authority statistics. All statistics produced by or on behalf of a public authority fall within SUG’s remit and you would consider statistics on subjects as diverse as population, housing, health, education and and social trends.
We are looking for people who have a good understanding of numbers and statistics, and who appreciate the value and importance of good quality information to inform the public and to support the development of public policy. SUG Members are expected to be statistics users who are impartial, separate from the political process, reflecting a diversity of backgrounds, interests, expertise and organisations across all sectors of our economy and community. Experience in civic engagement, raising awareness about the importance of statistics and quality assurance is particularly welcomed.
SUG meets formally 4 times a year together with the Chief Statistician. Monthly informal working meetings are also held with guest speakers providing learning sessions in various areas of statistics and to review work in progress. The total time commitment expected is 8 to 12 hours per month. This is a voluntary position and appointments are made by the Minister for a term of 3 years.
