Best Practices in Designing Websites for Dissemination of Statistics (2001 Edition)

The aim of the publication "Best practices in designing Websites for dissemination of statistics" is to assist national and international statistical offices in outlining the strategy for disseminating statistics through Internet. The publication is complementary to the methodological material “Guidelines for statistical metadata on the Internet” and considers in more detail the practical issues of implementing statistical Websites. It gives an overview of Website users, website content, architecture, functions, the development and maintenance issues, usability, and the success factors for a statistical website. The paper aims to contribute to a broader harmonisation in the use of web technologies for statistical offices.
