This report evaluates the feedback from 65 out of a possible 142 councils in England on the annual performance assessment (APA) of children's services in 2005. The views of all types of councils were represented in the survey results, and there was a suitable geographic spread. The questionnaire focused on a range of issues including the impact and cost of, and potential improvements to, the APA, along with more general evaluative questions. The majority of respondents considered all aspects of the process as good or excellent, with only a small minority considering it inadequate in any of the given survey criteria.
