State of the District Report

The State of the District report provides a summary of current social, economic, health and wellbeing trends across the Wakefield district. With other local information, the report is designed to support and inform the Wakefield Together Partnership in local decision-making and priority setting.

Graphs and charts are produced in real-time from the latest data on the Wakefield Observatory. Analysis is reviewed frequently to interpret the trends and what these mean for citizens and local service providers.

This report is complemented by seven State of the Area profiles, covering each of the area working boundaries, and 21 ward profiles. These profiles contain more local detail and are used by Area Action Groups, and others, to tailor services to local needs and to identify priorities.

This report currently acts as the Child Poverty Needs Assessment and Local Economic Assessment for the Wakefield District.

The Summer 2015 edition of the State of the District Report, published in PDF form, can be downloaded from here.
