Places Apart: Exposing disparities in Northern Ireland’s 11 new councils
The datasets behind the article are provided here. They look at:
- Estimated council debt and assets per capita
- Local rates (using a £150k home as an illustration)
- Claimant count (% of population)
- Median earnings
- Educational attainment (% pupils 5 GCSEs A*-C inc. English and Maths)
- Pupils entitled to free school meals (%)
- Life expectancy men and women
- Households in housing stress (% of population) and empty homes (%)
Mid-year population estimates were also used as part of this study.
The results have been used to construct a league table, ranking each of the councils from 1 to 11 on the variables above.
Additional datasets, relating to council areas but not used in the league table or the article, are also included here.
