Chapter 4: Statistics

Section I - Public Bodies - 2012

The absence of key statistics means that I am not in a position to comment on most of the tables which are usually published in Section I – Public Bodies.

Tables about which I cannot comment are:

  • Overview of FOI requests dealt with by public bodies
  • FOI requests dealt with by public bodies and subsequently appealed
  • FOI requests received - by requester type
  • Overview of FOI requests dealt with by public bodies
  • Analysis of FOI requests dealt with by public service sector
  • FOI requests received by civil service departments/offices
  • FOI requests received by other bodies
  • Fees charged

Given that statistical returns were made as normal by a number of Agencies, I can provide details in the usual manner under the following table headings. For ease of comparison, I have retained the numbering convention used in the tables in previous Annual Reports.
