Content types on the ONS website News and media statements

ONS news articles, media statements and letters to the press are published in the Media section (opens in a new tab) 

These are static pages and are used to provide updates and announcements on release plans and our statistics.


Media statements should not be used for releasing new data or analysis.

The content on these pages is usually also emailed directly to media contacts by the Media Relations Office.

These are stand-alone, text-only pages but allow related downloads on the right-hand side to publish letters exchanged between the ONS and other government departments.

Important information:

Contact (opens in a new tab)  if you would like to publish a media statement.
