There is no definition of the term "statistics relating to the work of the Department" and no centrally held information on either the volume or costs of statistics published each year on this basis.

Estimates for the annual costs of National Statistics are contained the relevant National Statistics annual report and accounts, which are available on the National Statistics website at:

http://www.statistics.gov.uk/statbase/product.asp?vlnk=1051 .

The last year that they were produced was 2004-05.
