The data section links to the most relevant datasets, for the benefit of users who want to access data but may not know where to find the tables they need.
Provide links to up to five datasets that users are most likely to be interested in.
When deciding which five to pick, consider:
- what tasks users who are interested in this topic might want to achieve, and which data might help them
- which datasets are the most integral to your analysis
- which datasets get the most downloads
For users wanting to access all the datasets used in the bulletin, there is a prominent link at the top right of the page.
You can also include a sentence at the end of the Data section to help users access the datasets. Use the following standard text to link to the related data page:
“View all data used in this statistical bulletin on the Related data page.”
How to format links
Each link should include:
- the title of the dataset
- the type of content (dataset or time series) and release date
- up to 30 words describing the dataset – use the dataset’s summary if appropriate
Provisional Long-Term International Migration estimates
Dataset | Released 29 November 2018
Migration flows to and from the UK, quarterly tables and charts
If linking to a dataset containing many tables, you can mention the most useful tables alongside the type of content (for example, “Dataset A02 | Released 29 November 2018”).
This section should not provide additional commentary or caveats about the data. Extra content is likely to slow down users’ journeys to the data they need.
