Updating Community Insight to the latest data

Community Insight now includes datasets released at neighbourhood level from Census 2011, in addition to the latest labour market indicators.

Census 2011 population data 

Three of the population indicators have been updated with Census 2011 data, replacing the older mid-year estimates:

  • Population aged 0-15
  • Population aged 65+
  • Population of working age

In addition, vulnerable group and deprivation indicators have been updated to use the Census 2011 data as the population denominators:

  • Workless through sickness benefit- shows % of all working age adults receiving Incapacity Benefit or Employment Support Allowance
  • Disability benefit-shows % of all people receiving Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
  • Older people social care benefit-shows % of all aged 65+ receiving Attendance Allowance (AA)
  • Pensioners in poverty- shows % of Pension Credit Claimants as a % of all pensioners
  • People with mental health issues- shows % of people receiving Incapacity Benefits for mental health of all working age adults
  • Working age welfare benefit claimants- shows % of all working age adults receiving DWP benefits

Labour Market Indicators

Two vulnerable group and labour market indicators have been updated with the latest data (bringing the time series up to November 2012):

  • Unemployment benefit- shows % of all working age adults receiving Jobseekers Allowance (JSA)
  • Unemployment to available jobs ratio- shows Unemployment (JSA) to job vacancies indicating the level of competition for local jobs
