Analysis of major practices of citizen consultation
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is tasked with producing a set of guidelines and
methodologies for stakeholder inclusion at the EU level (work package 7 of the European
Framework for Measuring Progress).
The guidelines will take account of the impact on citizens, relevant stakeholders and policy
makers that have emerged from the Council of Europe’s methodological guide ‘Concerted
development of social cohesion indicators’.
For this deliverable, the ONS analysed contributions from a questionnaire developed to
identify citizen consultation practices in the development of progress measures within the
EU and beyond.
