We’ve launched the latest release to our tool Profiling Places Wales.
The tool aims to support Welsh local authorities, Public Services Boards and their partners to plan and deliver services, to understand how places are changing over time and to better understand well-being at a community level. The tool contains data on 192 Built-up Area (BUA) geographies with a Census 2011 population of 2,000 or more.
Following the successful launch of our beta tool earlier this year, we’ve continued to receive valuable feedback which has helped us update and develop the tool further, including:
- The addition of health and well-being services data;
- The addition of more LSOA level maps to provide a breakdown for larger areas;
- The ability to export or print charts for reporting purposes; as well as
- More functional updates.
We have an exciting route map planned for the tool, with a long-term focus on its potential to support understanding of the data coming out the 2021 Census. In the meantime, we’ll be looking for input from users as we seek to add further data and extend its functionality.
If you have any thoughts or ideas or would like to have a chat about the tool, please contact Tom.Brame@data.cymru.
