Using diagrams

Diagrams are graphics that can help explain information or enhance understanding including:

  • process maps
  • flow charts
  • decision trees

Diagrams can be a useful illustrative tool but can present issues with accessibility and text duplication. If your content can be published and understood as plain HTML text, a diagram is not needed.

All diagrams published on the ONS website must be created by the Digital Design team. The Content Design team will assess requests and work with Digital Design to advise on the best way to present your content for the user.
