Statistics and intelligence

We want to make sure that the decisions we make about the services we deliver, the policies we develop and the actions we take are the right decisions for the City. We use a variety of information, including statistics, surveys, maps and results from consultations to inform our understanding and address equality issues across all areas of Newcastle.

Newcastle City Council works with our partners to conduct “an assessment of relevant needs” which helps to determine priorities and action in improving health and wellbeing.  This is often referred to as a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA). The most recent version of this is the 2021 City profile.

Newcastle Future Needs Assessment Local Profile

Work is currently underway to produce an updated version, taking into account the most recent data and information, including from the 2021 Census.

In the meantime, there are a number of alternative sources of information on the city which can provide the latest published data.
