Local Information System update

LIS_educational attainmentIn recent years, increasing importance has been placed on the value of information in local government. The 2006 Local Government White Paper highlighted the important role that local information systems can play in improving decision making and targeting service delivery.

Warwickshire has developed a Local Information System (LIS) using Instant Atlas software that allows users to view local data on interactive reports in the form of maps, charts and tables. The LIS provides data on a range of different demographic, economic and health indicators. This information being publicly available provides a greater degree of transparency on how decisions are made in local government.

The website acts a repository for all Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) related material in Warwickshire and includes:

  • Summaries of each topic
  • Detailed Needs Assessments
  • Access to all the underlying data via the LIS

There are a total of 10 reports now available:
