Palgrave Macmillan, the global academic and professional publisher, has won
a competitive tender to become the official publisher for The Office for
National Statistics (ONS).

The five-year contract, formerly held by The Stationery Office, covers all
the print titles produced by ONS. Titles include such well-known flagships
as Social Trends, The UK Yearbook, The Pink Book, The Blue Book, Economic
Trends and Family Spending, all of which contribute to the UK citizen's
understanding of the economy, population and society in Britain today. ONS
titles are influential in policy development and in key academic research.

The aims of the new publishing partnership will be to develop the
portfolio strategically both in terms of products and markets, and to
bring a renewed vigour to ensuring the currency and relevance of ONS
publications to society in Britain today.

Dominic Knight, Managing Director of Palgrave Macmillan, commented, "I am
delighted that Palgrave Macmillan has become the official publisher for
this prestigious and influential portfolio of government publications.
There are excellent synergies between the ONS portfolio and Palgrave
Macmillan's own lists and we are entering this relationship in the spirit
of partnership rather than as pure service providers. I believe that
Palgrave Macmillan brings an enormous amount of market knowledge and a
wealth of marketing expertise and publishing creativity to the
relationship and that we will be able to work closely with the ONS to take
the portfolio from strength to strength."

Len Cook, Chief Executive of ONS added, "Communication and access to
statistics is vital to make sense of our society. Demand and research show
printed material remains important in reaching users of statistics. I am
delighted we have enrolled the expertise of Palgrave Macmillan to help
extend our publications, reach out to more people and give users what they
want from us."
