Stat-Xplore forms part of the package which is used within the Department when publishing Official Statistics. It is used in conjunction with a Statistical First Release and set of summary statistical tables, with Stat-Xplore allowing users to construct their own bespoke statistical tables at very detailed level.

Stat-Xplore was updated in May 2015 to include new features and improvements, based on feedback from users.

A comprehensive user guide is available within the Stat-Xplore system which guides users through all the features of Stat-Xplore. In addition, a dedicated Stat-Xplore e-mail address allows users to send queries or requests for help in relation to Stat-Xplore.

Over 3,100 people have registered to use Stat-Xplore, and over 40,000 tables have been produced and downloaded by users since Stat-Xplore was launched in April 2013.
