We are currently updating and improving our data visualisation guidance, which was previously available in the "Presenting data" section of Style.ONS.

In November 2023, we added our new guidance and build specifications sections. Any further updates will be added to this page as and when content and sections are published.

If you need further guidance on how to create and format accessible charts, view the Government Analysis Function's data visualisation: charts guidance (opens in a new tab) 

You can also find out more about the design specifications of ONS charts in our Notion chart guidance (opens in a new tab) 

If you have any questions or need any further help with charts, please email (opens in a new tab)
