If an indicator tells you something about a place – it is probably in Local Insight. We hold data on a number of themes including; vulnerable groups, population, health, crime, housing, access and transport, education, communities and the environment.
We regularly collect data from more than 60 reputable data sources including Department for Work and Pensions, Office for National Statistics, Police UK, Land Registry and Hospital Episode Statistics. We use our expertise and networks to identify new sources of data, so this list is always growing.
Local Insight has a focus on neighbourhood level data, with the majority of the data available below local authority level. We collect and include data with national coverage across England, Wales and Scotland.
Local Insight is powered by data that we have been collecting for 20 years, enabling you to see how key indicators have changed over time through interactive reports.
Local Insight holds more than 1500 small area indicators.
Around 95% of the indicators in Local Insight are available below Local Authority level. The majority of these are published at Lower Super Output Area (LSOA) level.
Within Local Insight you can create any neighbourhood you are interested in and will aggregate all the data to that custom area.
You can also view indicators at Ward level on the Maps.
