English cities report and database



The Communities and Local Government Department has made available the findings of the most comprehensive study ever taken of England’s towns and cities. It focuses on 56 places under the five main themes of demographics, social cohesion, economic competitiveness & performance, liveability, governance & the impact of policy. The website includes a database which enables the user to generate charts and indicators of urban performance for individual towns and cities, and make comparisons between them.
