Area profiles

Area profiles are a way of understanding the life in local communities and help us find ways to make improvements by looking at the latest available data across a range of indicators.


They can help:

  • identify key issues such as crime, health, deprivation, economic activity and education
  • highlight geographical differences between areas
  • influence policy and resource decisions
  • assess how well an area is performing compared to the county as a whole.

Area profiles and Derbyshire Quilt 2016

The area profiles are updated on an annual basis and provide information at multi-agency team (MAT), electoral division, district and county level. Alongside this the Derbyshire Quilt provides an overview of all the indicators and shows the rank position of each electoral division or district in terms of their performance for a particular indicator.

These can be found on the Derbyshire Observatory (opens in a new window)
