Regional Growth Fund Round 1: Project Locations
Full size image (PNG, 123 Kb)
The map above shows indicative locations of projects based on responses given by applicants. These locations should not be taken to imply the area over which a project will have an impact (see map below).
In some cases the location supplied by applicants covered a wide area. In such circumstances a representative point within these areas has been used. If no location was provided the postcode of the applicant or recipient of RGF funds was taken instead.
In a few instances projects had a truly national scope. Locations for these projects have been omitted from the map.
Locations of projects may overlap, for example where the same entity has made multiple separate bids. Hence, the number of points on the map may appear to be less than the number of bids undergoing due diligence review.
Regional Growth Fund Round 1: Employment Impact
Full size image (PNG, 162 Kb)
The map above shows the employment impacts of projects. This is based on the numbers of direct created and safeguarded jobs given by applicants in proportion to the areas where they said these impacts would be felt. These figures are those given by applicants without alteration. However, they are subject to adjustment during due diligence.
Figures have been given in relation to the size of the working age population (per 10,000 head of working age population).
Resulting values have been grouped by quintile for local authorities where some employment impact would be felt. This has the advantage of representing the entire distribution evenly and minimising the effect of outliers. However, it does mean that the category sizes are not equal.
