I can confirm that the rough sleeping statistics, as ‘Official Statistics’ are produced in accordance with the principles and practices of the UK Statistics Authority’s Code of Practice for Statistics (Edition 2.0), which replaced the Authority’s Code of Practice for Official Statistics (Edition 1.0) in February 2018.
