Official statistics agencies aim to expand the reach of their products to different user groups, and face various challenges when trying to align their dissemination plans with the needs, skills, and expectations of learners and educators from diverse backgrounds. This paper focuses on Internet-based educational resources published by official statistics agencies, and raises the need for a model describing key desirable features of such resources. The paper outlines possible building blocks of such a model and illustrates its application in the analysis of selected features of Web-based products from three statistics agencies. Suggestions are made for research and development steps in this area, and for future quality standards, which can increase the contribution and benefit of educational products both to statistics agencies and to their users.
