The AF website has launched!

Today we launch the new website for the Analysis Function (AF)!

The aim of this website is to create a central place for everyone in government to access information and support related to government analysis.

This includes people working in the government analytical professions and people who work on government analysis but aren’t badged as analysts. For example, policy professionals.

The website has a central area for AF guidance, training courses, learning and development and career opportunities. It also features news items, blog posts and information about events.

We have set up an area on the website for each of the seven government analytical professions. There is also an area for those working in government analysis who are not badged to a specific analytical profession. These areas are currently in development.

The area for the Government Statistical Service (GSS) replicates the content specific to statistics that was previously hosted on the GSS website.

The GSS website and the AF pages on GOV.UK will continue to be available for six months while we move the AF website out of its development phase. But, please be aware that the GSS website and the AF pages on GOV.UK will not be updated with new content. Only the AF website will be updated.

Please take a look around the new website and let us know what you think! You can contact us at if you have any questions or comments about the new website.
