The Office for National Statistics is the UK’s largest independent producer of official statistics and is the recognised national statistical institute for the UK. It is responsible for collecting and publishing statistics related to the economy, population and society at national, regional and local levels. It has a website that serves around a million users a month and publishes many of the key statistics that influence the UK economy and politics.
That website has been called “..a national embarrassment.”, “..virtually unnavigable” and "the worst, most important, website in the UK."
We will talk about the challenges we faced, the standards we have embraced and what we learned from other official statistics organisations around the world and especially from the open [government] data community.
