Articles can be used to provide more detailed analysis on topics or to give updates or changes to a project or method. There are eight types of article on the ONS website. These are:
- in-depth analysis
- cross-cutting analysis
- methodology changes
- progress report
- current and upcoming work
- digital content article
Articles should only be used for presenting analysis of new data if they are published alongside a bulletin or data-only release. An article cannot be the only release of new data. If you are publishing the first release of new data, always use a bulletin, headline or data-only release.
Articles can be created in a series but most articles are likely to be one-off pieces of analysis. View the Creating bulletins and articles in a series section for more detail on how series work.
Articles should not be used to provide detailed methodology information, such as processes, methods, quality or definitions. Use a methodology page for this type of content.
The content management system does not allow related downloads to be added on the right-hand side of an article page. We can include a green “View all data used in this release” button to link to any datasets referenced in the analysis.
