Visual by Office for National Statistics (UK)
Government, statistics & data visualisation? What’s going on here then?
For years the UK Office for National Statistics releases lacked imagination; yet there was so much potential to inform & excite the public about important issues. Visual was launched to help address this.
The site uses various techniques (interactives, quizzes, articles) to help inform public debate, such as: How long might your pension need to last? What is the gender pay gap? How does migration affect your area? Have a play.
