Tables

Tables on Saskatchewan.ca should be used when:

  • You need to display numerical content, or 
  • Similar textual content is used for direct comparison purposes. 

The content within a table on a Saskatchewan.ca page can be between 2 - 8 columns wide and 2 -50 rows high. If your content is either too small or too big for these standards, it is recommended to use other ways to display your content.

When to Use a Table on Saskatchewan.ca

  • Displaying numerical data
  • Displaying like content that is meant to be compared

A Table on Saskatchewan.ca is not for:

  • Visually formatting content on a web page
  • Displaying data with only 1 column
  • Displaying data with only 1 row
  • Displaying data with over 8 columns
  • Displaying data with over 50 rows

Data Heavy Table (over 8 columns/50 rows)

If you’re dealing with trying to display a huge amount of tabular data on a web page, a better user presentation might be to:

  • Split the data into smaller tables that fit into the table size guidelines for saskatchewan.ca;
  • Display just the important highlights on the webpage with the full data available as a link to the full document (pdf, excel) in Publications Centre;
  • Display a description of the data and link to the full document (pdf, excel) in Publications Centre; or
  • Build a searchable database that will allow users to filter and sort the available data.

Data Light Table (under 2 columns/2 rows)

If you’re dealing with trying to display a small amount of tabular data on a web page, a better user presentation might be to:

  • Display the content as textual data. Create an infographic; or
  • Use bullet points to describe the content.
