Research and statistics

Analysis, economics and statistics enable us to make decisions and meet our targets using sound evidence. Communities and Local Government uses research and statistics to meet our objectives across the full reach of our policy remit.

You can find research documents on cross-cutting issues and gain access to research and statistics under each of the policy areas of the site. You will also find about the role analytical, economic and statistical activity plays in the development, application and evaluation of policy and service delivery. And researchers can also find out about forthcoming research contracts and how to submit a tender.

Communities and Local Government aims to publish reports of all research that it has funded or carried out within six months of the completion of the research, except in cases where some or all of the contents of the research falls within one or more of the exemptions of the Freedom of Information Act or exceptions in the Environmental Information Regulations.

For further information on anything to do with analytic, economic, or statistical activity in Communities and Local Government, please contact Analytical.Services@communities.gsi.gov.uk.
