As the demand increases for statistics and data to measure the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to change our data gathering and release practices, focussing efforts on priority analysis and statistics.

StatsWales Accessibility

This website is run by the Welsh Government. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • Change colours.
  • Zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen.
  • Use most of the website using a screen reader.
  • Navigate and search most of the website using just a keyboard.

The areas that are not fully accessible are associated with the view editing functionality. At present, within the data view interface, the following issues have been noted:

  • Column sorting is not keyboard navigable.
  • Navigation controls which expand & collapse dimension data are not navigable by keyboard.
  • It is not possible to add or remove dimensions via keyboard.
  • It is not possible to alter the dimension order via keyboard.
  • Dimension filters are not fully keyboard navigable.

We are looking to address these problems with an update of the data view interface during 2021. However, we’re always looking to improve the accessibility of StatsWales and we are keen to hear from people who will help us with feedback.

If you wish to contact us to provide feedback or if there is a specific piece of information you would like delivered in an alternative format please contact us at

This website was last tested August 2020. The test was carried out using the Lighthouse Accessibility audit tool.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Accessibility regulations. If you’re not happy with how we respond to your feedback, please contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
