To bookmark the latest release of a statistical product
There are two ways in which you can bookmark the latest release of a statistical product:

1. Bookmark a standard URL

Navigate to the latest release of the product you are interested in. More information on navigating the Statistics area of our web site can be found in Navigate to Statistics. Bookmark the URL using your browser's bookmark menu option. For example, in Internet Explorer, select 'Favourites > Add to Favourites' (Internet Explorer refers to bookmarks as 'Favourites').

Select 'OK' to add the product to your Favourites. When you select this bookmark in the future, it will always point to the latest release of that product.

2. Bookmark a shortened URL

Access the latest release of the product you are interested in, using a shortened URL. See Use a shorter URL to access statistics for more information on doing this. Bookmark the URL using your browser's bookmark menu option. The example in Figure 1 (above) shows bookmarking using Microsoft Internet Explorer.


To bookmark a previous release of a statistical product
Navigate to the product you are interested in. (More information on navigating the Statistics area of our web site can be found in Navigate to Statistics)

The default view of any product will be the latest release. You can then access previous releases from the "Past and Future Releases" tab as illustrated in Figure 2 below. Click on the release you need and it will take you to the Summary page for that release. From there you can bookmark the URL using your browser's bookmark menu option. The example in Figure 1 (above) shows bookmarking using Microsoft Internet Explorer.
