Economic information and analysis

Local Economic Assessment

Since April 2010, local councils have had a legal duty to assess the economic conditions of their area. 

To meet this duty, we have to analyse economic indicators to get an accurate, evidence-based picture of the opportunities and challenges facing the local economy.

Our 2010 Local Economic Assessment:

  • provides an evaluation of Derby's economy
  • includes the views of local businesses
  • is used to inform priorities and actions to support local economic growth.
