The Local Profiles aim to help local authorities use official statistics to better understand the economic, social and environmental picture for their area, and have been developed using data that will be of use to analysts, economists and policy makers involved in preparing local plans and strategies.
Local Profiles are available online.
Within the online Local Profile tool, individual theme reports for each topic can be downloaded.
Please enable macros when opening the files as this allows the tool to identify the areas associated with the selected area.
These files are Excel 97-2003 spreadsheets. Users using later versions of Excel may get the message 'security warning some active content has been disabled'. If you receive this message, go to options... and in the Microsoft Office Security Options, select 'Enable this content'. For ease of access the Excel theme reports can be downloaded here:
