Using data effectively
One of the principles of the information management strategy is that data should only be stored if it will be useful.
Statistics for Wales
The Welsh Government’s Knowledge and Analytical Services Department carries out detailed analysis of data from every statutory collection. Electronic copies of their publications and bulletins can be found in the statistics topic area of our website .
Database of Approved Qualifications in Wales (DAQW)
This database contains details of all qualifications approved for teaching in Wales.
For reporting in 2016, 2017 and 2018, the Welsh Government will use the same list of discounting codes as was used for reporting in 2015.
The Welsh Government are considering future discounting arrangements for reporting in 2019 and subsequent years.
