Social progress index

Dynamic information about the borough

In conjunction with the Social Progress Imperative we have developed the first social progress index at ward level allowing us to understand the social wellbeing of our residents. This pioneering use of data helps decision-makers, businesses, charities and the general public understand how individuals are living and progressing within the borough and who is being left behind. This is our fifth social progress index.

Scorecards consisting of a range of social and environmental indicators divided across 3 broad dimensions of social progress (Basic Human Needs, Foundations of Wellbeing and Opportunity) are available for each of our wards (based on 2021 boundaries).
