Factfiles about the UK all this week in the Guardian
Is crime going up or down? Are more people leaving or entering the country? Are we putting fewer or more people into prison?
With election slogans coming hard and fast from all sides of the political spectrum, it's a good time to sit back and figure out yourself what is really going on. Factfile UK, a unique seven-part series free with the Guardian and Observer, gives you all the facts and figures without the spin.
Find out how the country has changed under Labour: is manufacturing in the UK really dead? Where in the country are house prices the lowest? Where are the busiest roads in the country? Which train company is the least punctual? How many people in the UK still get married? How long do those who tie the knot tend to stay together? And exactly how much did your MP claim on expenses? It's all here, displayed in accessible infographics in this statistical portrait of the nation.
