The development of a digital government project to support the location, manipulation and understanding of a format for statistical electronic table usage by citizens is discussed. The first component of the work is in the provision of multiple location techniques, a natural language processing (NLP) environment and a browsing/exploration environment. The table browser supports a variety of manipulations and explanation functions for support. In the electronic environment, an e-table and its content are linked to the metadata that provides context and explanation thus enabling appropriate and informed usage and enabling users to learn as they go.
