How accessible are our statistics

We are committed to making our statistical outputs accessible. We have reviewed our statistical outputs and made adjustments to bring the majority of outputs, published from 23 September 2020, into line with The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018 legislation. Some statistical outputs BEIS publishes after 23 September 2020 may not be fully accessible, but we are striving to make all publications fully compliant with the legislation in the future.

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