Subnational indicators explorer

The Office for national Statistics have released their ‘alpha’ version of the Subnational Indicators Explorer which can be accessed below.

Compare a local authority and the UK average (median) local authority by different indicators, such as weekly pay and healthy life expectancy.

You can also add and compare up to three other local authorities.

Where the chosen local authority is more than one standard deviation away from the median, you will see the indicators highlighted under “better than the median” or “worse than the median”. Some indicators have higher values positioned on the left under “worse than the median” such as the percentage of smoking adults because it is more intuitive.

Links to the publicly available sources of the data displayed in the tool can be found within their accompanying dataset.
