Statistical Insights are a series of stories launched in 2016 that highlight indicators that tend to be less visible than standard headline indicators, but provide interesting evidence for analysis and policy making in some areas.
Each issue includes a story on the usefulness of the indicator, graphs to illustrate the story, a short description of the indicator, links to where the data can be found, and a further reading section.
