Assignment overview — What Is a Fact Sheet?

Fact sheets are short reports that present information in a readable and interesting format. They enable scientists and researchers to concisely summarize the results of research, so it is shareable with the public or other professionals. However, be aware that fact sheets are more than just random lists of words or numbers. A useful fact sheet has a clear organization and structure. It names the issue at hand, defines it, sets up relevance, gives data (usually numerical or statistical), discusses interventions and makes recommendations. Because fact sheets summarize data in a report format, they must provide accurate citations and references for the sources. An example of a fact sheet is this one by the Child Welfare Information Gateway on Child Abuse and Neglect Fatalities (You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader  to access this file).

General Format and Audience

Most fact sheets are two to four pages in length. They should have a good balance of text (in a readable font), white space, and images or charts and graphs. An effective fact sheet is informative and visually interesting. Many use a two-column format as well as color fonts and headers, and photographs. [Given the sensitive nature of this fact sheet, images of victims (photographs) are not appropriate]. Pie charts or histograms with statistics are ideal for fact sheets. You may use the Fact Sheet templatePreview the document to help simplify the formatting process.

It is important to keep your audience in mind as you write the text for your fact sheet. Assume that your audience consists of domestic violence interns. While your fact sheet targets a semi-professional audience, they may not be familiar with the technical definitions for all relevant terms. Therefore, you must take care to define all key terms. For example, some members of your audience may be unfamiliar with the concept of a fatality review report, so be sure to define that term. Use headings throughout the fact sheet to guide your reader through the fact sheet.
