Analytical Papers contain analysis of data and other research on a variety of social and economic issues that has been carried out by Treasury staff or that has been commissioned by the Treasury or Ministers.
A number of the Analytical Papers planned for publication in 2015 have been prepared as part of the government's work on Social Investment.
The viewpoints expressed in Analytical Papers are those of the authors, and do not represent official government policy, but the author's analysis and research has been sought by the Treasury to inform policy advice. See the full Disclaimer for Analytical Papers.
The Treasury's aim in publishing Analytical Papers is to make analysis and research informing its policy advice available to a wider audience and to inform and encourage public debate. Where possible the related data sets will be published with Analytical Papers.
