Search for data and reports
With the new Search tool in LG Inform Plus, it's now easier than ever to discover data and reports for your local authority and all sorts of areas across England.
The search box allows you to search through metric types and reports using keywords. Click here to see a list of advanced search operators.
With over 10,000 metric types available, you can find data and reports on certain themes using the category buttons. Click on any of the large category buttons to view data and reports for different subjects. For example, clicking the 'Population' button will show data related to the demographics of a population.
You can further limit these results using the secondary category buttons to view data and reports for certain themes. For example, clicking the 'Population' button and then the 'Households' button will show you data and reports regarding households and their make-up.
It's also possible to view data and reports by circumstances: age, sex, ethnicity and employment. These buttons provide a quick way to view statistics on the demographics of any area.
Once you've used the search box or buttons to find relevant data and reports, you can view the search results at the bottom of the page. The 'Data' tab provides links to different metric types. Click one of the links to view data for that metric type in tables, charts and maps. The 'Reports' tab provides links to different reports relevant to your search. Click one of the links to view a report.
Your search results will always be limited by the specific area type selected above the results. Use the drop-down to see data and reports for wards, LSOAs, CCGs and other official or custom geographies.
