Regional and local icon

The Regional and Local Insight data sets bring together a huge range of data related to culture and sport. The outputs are updatable MS Excel sheets containing summary tables and breakdowns by year and, where available, local authority.


Data tables

The Regional and Local Insights were derived from the following data tables. These data tables are collated sources of data on similar themes. Where available, data for the last five years and by local authority are given.


Data tables on gross value added, businesses, turnover, employment, volunteering, and business start-up for the CASE economy (culture, creative industries and sport).
Note: The spreadsheet was amended on 4 May 2011. The previous version incorrectly used Financial Years which has now been corrected to Calendar Years. No other changes were made.


Data by levels of public (exchequer and Lottery) and private capital funding across the CASE domains (where available).


Data on the levels of public (exchequer and Lottery) and private funding for non-capital projects across the CASE domains.
