Produced annually by the Wirral Intelligence Service, the compendium of statistics is a quick reference guide to the borough’s statistics covering a range of areas.
The thirteenth compendium provides information and data about Wirral’s population, children and young people, health and wellbeing, mortality, economy and business, transport, housing and the environment, and crime and safety of residents.
This year, the compendium will be available online exclusively and can be viewed via the Wirral Intelligence Service website here.
The 2020 compendium includes more information than all previous versions, with new research and data on issues such as climate change, obesity, and NHS Health Check uptakes.
It is a fantastic tool for Wirral, teaching more about our population, the borough’s complexities and variety of needs – which in turn informs local priorities for health, wellbeing and other areas.
In recent months, local communities have all felt the impact of COVID-19. Much work is ongoing across the borough to understand the impact of the virus on our communities, this work will be reported in due course as data becomes available and we begin to understand its impact on health and wellbeing in the borough.
The online version of the Compendium of Statistics is now much more interactive too, allowing for easier navigation around the document. More information can be found on the Wirral Intelligence Service website here: wirralintelligenceservice.org.
Wirral Intelligence Service website was established in 2017 to bring together in one place high quality research, information, and intelligence about Wirral; both the place and the people that live there. Information is available on a wide range of themes including population and people, health, the economy, poverty and inequalities and crime and community safety. The information also provides local, regional and national context.
