ONS (Office for National Statistics, UK) launched its new website. Clean, well structured and with visual and interactive elements.
New statistical websites – like Italy’s Istat in August 2011 and now ONS’ - as well as some older ones – like Swiss Stats (Federal Statistical Office FSO) or French INSEE - follow more and more a kind of standard which is based on a navigation by themes.
But there is no common standard concerning the themes and the sub-themes.
Once a topic chosen further navigation is very similar to one another:
- Key figures (sometimes visualised)
- Publications, studies and analyses
- Datasets , detailed data (sometimes with DB access)
- Guidance and methodology
- Interactive visualisations (Maps, international comparisons)
