A source for each chart must be provided in the following format:
[PUBLICATION OR SOURCE OF DATA] from the [ORGANISATION]
We use words rather than punctuation or symbols to tell users which sources have provided data that are used in the visual. This is more accessible for all users.
Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings from the Office for National Statistics
Pay As You Earn Real Time Information from HM Revenue and Customs
Local Land Charges Research from the Land Registry
More than one source
If the chart is compiled using more than one source, then list them all by dividing them with commas. However, if the list becomes very long then just provide the three most important sources.
Labour Force Survey from the Office for National Statistics, Value Added Tax (VAT) returns from HM Revenue and Customs, and the School Census from the Department for Education
Multiple sources from the same organisation
If you have multiple sources from the same organisation, you can include the organisation name only once.
Value Added Tax (VAT) returns and Pay As You Earn Real Time Information from HM Revenue and Customs, and the Labour Force Survey from the Office for National Statistics
We are constantly improving based on research and best practice. Any significant changes to our guidance are available on the Updates page.
