Queensland Government Statistician's Office (QGSO) provides an integrated statistical service between Queensland Government agencies and the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). We identify and review the statistical requirements of the Queensland Government, advise the ABS on issues that inform the national statistical work program and support the Government Statistician as the Queensland Government’s representative on the Australian Statistical Advisory Council and the State Statistical Forum.
QGSO maintains a statewide network of people who are interested in statistical matters and uses Data Smart alerts to keep the network informed about topics of interest focusing on regional data needs; changes to relevant statistical standards and collections; and upcoming network information sessions. To join the network and keep informed about statistical matters: register for Data Smart alerts.
