Lecture Slides in Regional and Urban Economics

Office for National Statistics

This is an archive of over 100 graphics constructed by the ONS, free to use under the Open Government Licence. Each focuses on making a few headline statistics or trends visible and colourful. Economic themes include the economic health of regions of the UK; trade statistics; the labour market; taxation; benefits; house prices. Social trends are also addressed by some of the graphics.

While most are drawn from data for a recent year, a few give a very long-term view, for example "170 years of industrial change across England and Wales" and "A Century of Home Ownership and Renting in England and Wales";
