O2 Motion and ONS

Helping the Office for National Statistics support Government policy during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trends in movement around the UK

ONS provides statistics and insights on the UK’s economy, society and population for the UK Government, society and businesses.

As the COVID-19 pandemic began to take hold, ONS were looking for timely, reliable data sets that would help them establish movement trends among the population, which could then be used to gain insight and inform the country’s response.
