Effective tables and graphs – free half day training course in March

The Good Practice Team are running their half day training on ‘effective tables and graphs for official statistics’ at the London ONS office on Thursday 9th March.

If you’re interested, you can sign up via Eventbrite.

This course provides an Statistics graph slideshowunderstanding of the fundamental design decisions and strategies needed to present statistical information effectively in tables and graphs. It raises awareness of the problems people may have in perceiving the information encoded in a table or graph in a way that the designer intended.

The course focuses on core principles and how these are applied to static, non-interactive tables and graphs.  It does not cover interactive data visualisation tools, but the core principles and theoretical issues that are discussed also underpin many of the decisions that are made when developing effective interactive content.

GPT are willing to arrange this course (or variations of it) to run within Departments if there’s sufficient demand – please contact goodpracticeteam@statistics.gov.uk if you’re interested
