The CASE Local Culture & Heritage Profile Tool is a quick and easy way to get hold of a range of data that can be used in local cultural and heritage-related policy-making. The data comprises:

  • Local Area Profile - data connected to the demographic nature and physical geography of the area
  • Economic Performance - data on local culture and heritage business stock, new business activity, employment and financial performance
  • Attendance and Participation - statistics on the attendance and participation of adults at cultural activities
  • Quality and Satisfaction - data on the levels of satisfaction with and quality of current cultural and heritage assets in a local area
  • Education - levels of involvement of students in cultural and heritage courses at GCSE and higher education level
  • Sites and Assets - numbers of cultural sites and heritage assets that are based in a local area
  • Financial Investment - details on the total grants and investment from local authority sources and National Lottery programmes
  • Nearest Neighbours - comparisons of a number of statistics with nearest local authority neighbours (based on the CIPFA model)

The majority of this information is available at the lower tier local authority level (district/unitary), although some information is only available at the upper tier local authority level (county/unitary).  It is also available for Local Enterprise Partnership areas. In every instance the local data is compared with the regional and national average.
