A meta description is a HTML tag that provides a brief summary of the page. It appears in search engine results, such as Google, alongside the title and so needs to make sense out of context (that is, away from the ONS website). It helps users decide if the page is what they are looking for.
The meta description should be clear, concise and frontloaded. It should summarise clearly what the page is about. It must be fewer than 160 characters as otherwise the text may be cut off by search engines. The meta description can be the same as the page summary.
