Summary of published data

Download the full list of indicators now available in Local Insight.

We have added 67 indicators to Local Insight. This release includes small area data from the labour market and travel to work topic summary. Indicators for the following datasets can now be seen live in Local Insight: 

  • Economic activity status (24 indicators) 
  • Travel to work (21 indicators) 
  • Industry and occupation (22 indicators)

ONS also published detailed breakdowns of different occupation and industry datasets. These are currently not available in Local Insight as the data has not been published at Output Area (and will show very low numbers in many instances). However, we can add breakdowns that are useful to you upon request – please send these to 


We have updated 14 of the indicators in the Local Insight report (see Economy: Economic activity – page 51 and Economy: Job type – page 52). You will need to update your reports in order to see Census 2021 data here.
