Equality Evidence Newsletter - Issue 6: June 2010
Office for National Statistics Improving Equality Data Newsletter
The Office for National Statistics Equalities and Wellbeing branch produce a newsletter to inform users of research which is currently being undertaken and to highlight key milestones in equality issues. Examples of the topics in recent editions include harmonisation, non-household populations and the equality measurement framework (EMF).
Analysing Equality Data
On June 15th the Statistical Directorate published ‘Guidance on Analysing Equality Data’. This statistical article provides key guidance on using equality data in Wales including information on sources, definitions, limitations and developments. The article is organised by strand and was designed as an accompaniment for the Using Equality Evidence Seminar taking place in September.
Welsh Assembly Government Equality Theme Page
The Welsh Assembly Government’s Statistical Directorate have updated and improved their Equality Statistics Theme Page following feedback from users.
The aim of the improvements was to ensure that equality data can be accessed in a more streamlined and focussed way. The new pages can be navigated by equality strand and bring together statistical data and information on equality issues. Details of statistical publications, data sets and links to relevant information on external websites are included.
We would very much appreciate any feedback on the theme page. Please forward any comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Using Equality Evidence Seminar
The Welsh Assembly Government in conjunction with the Welsh Local Government Association, the National Health Service and the Equality and Human Rights Commission are hosting two seminars (one in North Wales and one in South Wales) focusing on using equality evidence. These are pilot seminars targeted towards NHS and local government equality practitioners and they will be rolled-out more widely later in 2010.
The seminars aim to examine what equality evidence is, why equality evidence is important and how equality evidence can be used in the development of a policy or service. The seminars will also cover the types of equality evidence available and offer advice on what people can do if they cannot find the evidence they need.
Good Relations Framework
Work is ongoing to establish a Good Relations Measurement Framework in time for the Equality and Human Rights Commission triennial report.
Good relations is a relatively new concept which looks at how people ‘get along’ and the Good Relations Measurement Framework (GRMF) aims to produce a set of indicators that cover the current state of good relations using four domains:
- Personal security
- Interaction with others
- Participation and influence
Following consultation a final report has been drafted and publication is due later in 2010.
