This document is the response from the Employment Related Services Association (ERSA) to the DWP Consultation on Work Programme official statistics after June 2013: content and presentation. 

In the response, ERSA welcomes the changes that have already taken place since the first publication of Work Programme statistics, including a commitment to quarterly publication of the release and the development of a more user friendly look with more visual data. However, the consensus across ERSA membership is that there is still sufficient scope to change both the content and presentation of data to allow more accessible presentation of Work Programme performance for a range of audiences.
