Experimental badging is used so that users and stakeholders can be involved in the assessment of the publications’ suitability and quality while it is being developed. We are still expanding the Child Maintenance Service Publication and will be performing a full review of our overall Child Maintenance publication strategy over the next 6 months in the light of the completion of the Child Support Agency case closure process.

Once those changes are complete we plan to release Child Maintenance Service statistics under standard Official Statistics guidelines in 2019.
