Key Data Sources

LG Inform

“LG inform presents you with up-to-date published data about your local area and the performance of your council or fire and rescue authority. Whether you’re interested in scrutiny, a particular service area, or simply need an overview, it can help you review and compare performance with other authorities.”

Public Health Outcomes Framework

“The Public Health Outcomes Framework sets out a vision for public health, that is to improve and protect the nation’s health, and improve the health of the poorest fastest. With this in mind we have developed a set of supporting indicators (grouped into four domains) that help focus our understanding of how well we are doing. Indicators have been included that cover the full spectrum of what we understand public health to be, and what we can realistically measure at the moment.”

Children and Education

It includes data on children looked after by local authorities, child protection, special educational needs and disability (SEND), pupil attainment, children’s health, post-16 circumstances and judgements from Ofsted.

It makes available over 100 indicators across different age ranges and types of risk, and allows you to explore how these vary across England. Our aim is to make this data accessible so it can be used and visualised by national and local policy makers, researchers, journalists and analysts.”

CWIP: Child Welfare Inequalities Project

“The purpose of the CWIP App is to increase the accessibility of government data related to children’s services through consolidated data sets and web-based data visualisation, including for quite complex data processing and visualisation procedures. We think if more people, including people with lived experience and frontline practitioners who are usually excluded from discussions about trends and features in data, have better access to this data there can be better activism and accountability on behalf of children, families, and the social work profession. ”

“This is the site for open data about crime and policing in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. You can download street-level crime, outcome, and stop and search data in clear and simple CSV format and explore the API containing detailed crime data and information about individual police forces and neighbourhood teams.
