Building place-based data indices: How can we support places to use data to address the challenges they face?

This session asks ‘How can we support places to use data to address the challenges they face?’ Power to Change will chair the panel to Change with three speakers. The Centre for Thriving Places will present their Thriving Places Index, a framework measuring the local conditions for wellbeing, and whether those conditions are being delivered fairly and sustainably. The Social Economy Data Lab will present their work using credit and debit card transaction data to track the impact of Covid-19 on high streets. And Onward will present their work developing the Social Fabric Index, identifying not only the places which demand the greatest attention, but also the communities whose strength offers lessons.
