Accessibility Statement

The National Statistics Office (NSO) recognises the importance of ensuring that the website is accessible to everyone and is committed to making the content accessible to all users and improve its website user experience. We are continuously working to enhance our website structure, content and navigation to better conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and all the other accessibility requirements and recommendations requested by the Government of Malta ICT (GMICT) policies.

Our w
ebsite, nso.gov.mt, does not fully conform to the accessibility standard and is therefore partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. However, the NSO, is in the process of programming and designing a new website which will replace the existing one by 2022. Moreover, the NSO is in the process of piloting a replacement system for the online Statistical Database, currently known as STATDB, and the new system will be fully compliant to these standards.

We acknowledge that some of our users might find difficulties with accessing our dissemination products, like news releases and publications, which are available in Portable Document Format (PDF).
  Users might also find difficulties to navigate in this website using just a keyboard and a screen reader software.  Users experiencing these difficulties are kindly requested to contact the Communication and Dissemination Unit for assistance. 

Feedback and assistance

The NSO welcomes your feedback on the accessibility of our website and the digital tools. Please let us know if you encounter any accessibility issues and we will be pleased to help with your query.
