Fact Sheet

A fact sheet is a presentation of data in a format which emphasizes key points concisely. The layout is simple and often standardized, e.g. using a table, bullet points and/or headings, and is usually on a single printed page. Fact sheets often contain answers to common questions (e.g. FAQs), educational material, or how-to, "do-it-yourself" advice. They are sometimes a summary of a longer document.
