Essex Open Data
Posted on: May 9, 2022
Have you explored the endless insights that Essex Open Data has to offer?
The Open Data site holds a wealth of information on multiple subjects, from population statistics to economy and community safety, giving you valuable on-demand insight to plan, prioritise and shape the services you deliver.
Want to know who is most at risk of fuel poverty in Essex? You want access to the latest Essex Climate Action research? Would detailed inequalities information help to inform your service planning? Essex Open Data has everything you need!
Essex Open Data is also sharing more statutory information with the recently published Looked After Children dashboard, an easy to use interactive tool enabling you to explore information that relates to children looked after by Local Authorities, including placements, legal status, adoption from care.
Watch out for the 2022 Joint Strategic Needs Assessment coming soon to the Open Data platform. It will provide insight on the current and future health and care needs of local populations helping us to inform and guide the planning of health, wellbeing and social care services within Essex.
Essex Open Data advocates for the use of open data as an opportunity to increase transparency and engage residents in the information that is produced and used by local government. We believe that communities, businesses and public sector organisations can benefit from the shared knowledge created by open data, helping us to make better decisions, as well as stimulating innovation across Essex.
ELS hosting a workshop at the Police Fire and Crime Commissioner Conference taking place 24 May, where we’ll be sharing our recent work with Essex County Fire and Rescue Services, demonstrating the impact it’s had on service delivery, and we’ll be working with partners to identify new opportunities to collaborate on open data projects.
