Current metrics

The East Midlands region started the ball rolling by suggesting a basket of voluntary local metrics which we consulted LG Inform users on.  This resulted in a small selection of indicators which authorities felt were not being covered in a timely manner by existing statistics.

We have seen growing interest in using LG Inform as a free benchmarking service and to maximise its usefulness we are keen to see the basket of metrics grow to meet the needs of all authorities.

You don’t have to submit data for all metrics to participate, just those that are of interest to you locally. The upload process is designed to be very quick and easy, and involves simply entering your authority’s figure into an online form.

The current basket of metrics is:

Detritus, graffiti, fly posting and litter – new from Q4 2017

  • Percentage of relevant land and highways that is assessed as having deposits of litter, detritus, graffiti and fly-posting that fall below an acceptable level (calculated from number of sites by grade data)
  • Cleanliness Index (calculated from number of sites by grade data)

Annual Workforce Survey metrics – new from Q4 2017
