Australian Government Statistical Forum (AGSF)
The AGSF provides a vehicle for senior staff in Australian Government agencies to discuss key national and international statistical developments. The role of the forum is to: advance the NSS and consider strategic matters of importance to the effective operation of the NSS; consider matters of relevance to producers of statistical services within the Australian Government and share information on developments in each agency's activities, with regard to national statistical information; and to identify opportunities for collaborative work.
