How accessible are our statistics

We are committed to making our statistical outputs accessible. We have reviewed our statistical outputs and for the large majority of our statistical series, the most recent publication includes accessible versions of all outputs, in line with The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the “accessibility regulations”) . There are a small number of statistical series where the elements of the latest release are not fully accessible. In particular, some of our spreadsheets may not be clearly structured with labelled tables, and labelled headings. Columns headings may be blank. Workbooks tabs may not have a clear title. This does not meet success criterion 1.3.1 (info and relationships) .

We are working on these remaining series and will ensure that accessible versions of the latest releases are available by the end of 2022 at the latest.

In accordance with the accessibility regulations, we have assessed the impact of making all statistics published between 23 September 2018 and 23 September 2020 fully accessible. This was deemed to be a disproportionate burden for the following reasons:

  1. BEIS published around 350 statistical publications in the period 23 September 2018 to 22 September 2020. The majority of these publications are not fully accessible. Making all publications fully accessible would have large resource implications, which would significantly impact on our ability to meet the current statistical needs of our users.
  2. Users of routine regular statistics bulletins should only access the most recently published iteration, which may include revisions, methodological improvements and changes, and incorporates retrospection. The latest iteration thus generally supersedes all earlier iterations.
  3. Google Analytics evidence demonstrates that usage is high for the most recent iteration only, falling to negligible levels after the release of subsequent iterations, so actual usage does not support a need to proactively reproduce earlier iterations. For ad hoc releases the same trend is observed, indicating ad hocs are of primary interest close to the time of release, and this interest does not persist.

In line with the accessibility regulations, we will provide a specific statistical publication in a different format if requested. Email: enquiries@beis.gov.uk.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (in Great Britain) and the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland (in Northern Ireland) are responsible for enforcing the accessibility regulations. If you are unsatisfied with your response from BEIS, you may contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service or the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland.
