This section was often included in articles before the analysis to highlight the experimental nature of the data, research or method. However, putting this sort of information first in lengthy paragraphs often slows down users and stops them getting to the main analysis.
It is, however, important to be clear if your analysis is using data gathered through experimental research or methods that are not yet official statistics. You can use a grey warning box at the end of the Main points or Main changes section with this wording:
“These are not official statistics and should not be used for policy- or decision-making. They are published as research into an alternative method for producing [topic] statistics. Caution is advised when using the data.”
Change the second sentence to describe your release. More information on the methods used and quality limitations of the data can be included in the Data sources and quality section.
