Module 11 – tables (PPTX, 485KB)
This module is provided in a PowerPoint file. We normally advise to provide all content in an Open Document Format (ODF), but we have found problems with the accessibility of the tables mark-up in ODF formats.
Some of the content within this PowerPoint deliberately fails the accessibility success criterion as part of the exercise.
If you have any other problems accessing or viewing this file please email Analysis.Function@ons.gov.uk.
