Introducing UK Perspectives


Each day in the UK crucial decisions are made based on official statistics.

Coinciding with the launch of Visual.ONS, we’ve painted a data-driven picture of the social and economic changes that have occurred in the UK over the last three decades.

The various themes in our UK Perspectives series are directly related to issues that are important to the UK – including population, ageing, migration, house prices, energy consumption, productivity, employment and more. The articles will be of interest to anyone who wants to find out more about what statistics can tell us about these topics, by presenting a summary with pointers to further information.

Articles cover in turn: population and migration, housing, Europe, public services, personal and household finances, energy and transporteconomy and labour market.

We hope you enjoy the series – please email us at with any feedback.
