Webinar: The ONS Labour Force Survey Transformation Project - Designing a web-first approach to data collection


The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is transforming the way its surveys collect data. It is introducing an online mode, and designing for a web-first approach to mixed-mode collection, which brings challenges and opportunities.

This free webinar, organised by the UK Data Service in association with the SRA, will be presented by Alex Nolan, a Senior Researcher at ONS. Alex will describe how ONS is developing a respondent-centric approach to moving labour market survey data collection online.
