[Return to previous page]

John Pullinger, the National Statistician at the UK Statistics Authority, gave a very positive response to the social intelligence paper on open data, saying:

"Thank you for sharing this fascinating report. I have passed it on to the team at ONS that has been looking at public attitudes ahead of possible legislation on data sharing. It is essential that we make the case (for open data and for data sharing) in a way that is convincing but also respects the views that the public has (however confused they may be)."
