Data updates in Local Insight

Monthly data updates

This month we have a number of updates from Land Registry, Police UK, Department for Work and Pensions and Ofcom, as well as updating the reports. Indicators included are:

  • Average house price, broken down by house type
  • Number of property transactions, broken down by house type
  • Incidents of crime, broken down by offence type
  • Recipients of unemployment benefit, broken down by age, time period and gender
  • Broadband speed

Please note: The ‘Low broadband speed’ indicators differ slightly from the old indicator it replaces. The new indicators give a % of broadband connections that have speeds < 2Mbits/s. The old indicator gave a proportion of postcodes with slow internet.

Greenspaces data in Local Insight

We have also added two Greenspaces datasets this month: Greenspace coverage, total (this show the percentage of an area that is covered by green space) and Greenspace coverage, public parks and gardens (this shows the percentage of an area that is covered by public parks and gardens). For more information on use cases and how the data was put together see our blog postor for more information on how to view the data in Local Insight and what’s included in the data, see our blog post here.
