Data for Neighbourhoods and Regeneration

There is a huge amount of data (raw and statistical summaries), across a vast range  of themes relevant for Hack the City, that are catalogued on the Data for Neighbourhoods and Regeneration website (http://data4nr.net).

Data is organised in the following top-level themes, each with their own sub-themes:

  • Population
  • Derivation & Income
  • Employment
  • Economy & Enterprise
  • Education & Skills
  • Health & Disability
  • Crime & Community
  • Environment
  • Access & Transport
  • Geographies & Benchmarking

Dataset records are collated from different sources, including data.gov.uk, Land registry, Office of National Statistics, The Places database, Department for Work and Pensions and many more. Many of these are only collected every few years, but there is a handy Recently Added section that gives an idea of current figures.

Local Information Systems are provided by geographical region.  National Indicator Sets, announced as part of the 2007 Comprehensive Spending Review to monitor local progress, are also linked in the following themes:

The website is an official commission and catalogue of the Department of Communities & Local Government, developed by Oxford Consultants for Social Inclusion (OCSI).
