A new website ‘state of the cities database’ (SOCD) has been launched today.

SOCD has been created to provide access to updated data that underpins the State of the English Cities Report (SOCR), published in March 2006 by ODPM (now Communities and Local Government). The full report can be accessed by clicking here.

The database contains all the key indicators of urban performance used in the report and allows users to identify in greater detail recent changes in English cities and will allow future monitoring of cities and the impact of policies.

The indicators are available for 56 cities in England (built up or urban areas with a population of 125,000 or more). Other information is also available in the database, including the Areas of Town Centre Activity.
