Static pages

There are two types of static pages on the website: static articles and generic static pages.

Static articles are similar to methodology articles but are mainly used for survey and census information. They have a table of contents but no PDF download. For example, the How to take part in the COVID-19 Infection Survey and census question development and research pages.

Generic static pages are text-only pages that are used to publish news releases and statements in the Media section of the website. They can also be used to display general information, such as events or updates on the work of the organisation. They do not include a table of contents or the option for a PDF download and can only be created in the About us area of the website.

These are stand-alone pages that cannot be built in a series and do not have previous versions. They are different to methodology pages as they can only be created in certain sections of the website, not in the main taxonomy.

These pages also allow related downloads on the right-hand side.

We are constantly improving based on research and best practice. Any significant changes to our guidance are available on the Updates page.
