Blue Skies Thinking Network

The Blue Sky Thinking Network is the “ideas factory” for the statistical modernisation community. The Blue Skies Thinking Reports provide an environment scan on selected topics. These brief papers answer four key questions – what is the topic, what is the value for official statistics, what is already being done, what are the opportunities for further collaboration.
