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 the tool in 2019, we’ve continued to review and develop the tool, the latest release includes:
- train station mapping and commuter data;
- linking local health & well-being services to the Dewis Cymru directory and map;
- the addition of 2019 WIMD data;
- improvements to Census metadata; as well as
- other 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 of the 2021 Census. In the meantime, we’re 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.
