Analysis in Government Month 2021


Join us for the first Analysis in Government month where we bring together people from across the Government Analysis Function to celebrate the importance of analytical work.

Taking place in May, this month-long event will:

  • raise awareness of the Analysis Function and the analytical work being done across government
  • increase engagement with analysts working across government and encourage collaborative working by bringing the analytical community together

About this event

You will be invited to a programme of events, talks and activities covering a range of interesting and useful content.

What is the Analysis Function?

Awareness raising sessions on what the Analysis Function is, why it is important, why is it helpful to analysts and where to find useful information. This will include sessions on the different professions as well as career stories, for example; apprenticeships and the fast stream.

Challenge Analysts

A hackathon where you form a team (across departments and professions) and work together on an analytical task, for example a data visualisation creation. We will crown the winning team!


We’ll host a suite of online events on working in the Analysis Function. This will include success stories from some of the nominees for the Analysis in Government Awards.

‘Five things you didn’t know about…’

A series of blog posts giving you an insight into the types of analytical work being done across government.

Dates and locations

All events will take place in May 2021 – watch this space for specific event dates.

Due to ongoing restrictions, we will host our live events online using Microsoft Teams. We will do our best to make sure the online events give you the same experience that an in-person event would bring.

You will have time for networking with colleagues across government with similar interests and work streams.

Who should attend

Analysis in Government month is open to:

  • members of the Analysis Function
  • aspiring analysts (both within and outside of government)
  • anyone with an interest in government analysis, for example; other civil servants, academics or analysts in non-government organisations


Further information on how to sign-up to our events will be added to this page shortly.
