New website launch from the Office of National Statistics

Yesterday, the UK Office of National Statistics, the institution that is “responsible for collecting and publishing statistics related to the economy, population and society”, launched its new website.

As well as a new look, they’ve concentrated on improving the search experience and making it accessible to mobile device users.

The front page is a nice at-a-glance collection of some of the major time series ones sees in the news (employment rate, CPI, GDP growth etc.) . And there’s plenty of help-yourself downloadable data; they claim to offer 35,000 time series which you can explore and download with their interactive time series explorer tool.
