Black Country Intelligence Reports

We produce a wide range of intelligence reports including the Annual Economic Review in order to stimulate evidence-based policy debate amongst Black Country partners.  

Thematic barometers are produced for a more in-depth analysis of theme areas along with regular intelligence briefing to the monthly LEP Board meetings and labour market intelligence reports to the People Board. 

Thematic Reports:

  • Business (Competiveness) Barometer –provides information on a range of business statistics including business stock, business births, survival rates, unemployment and wage data. 
  • People & Skills Barometer – analyses the levels of skills in the existing and potential workforce. 
  • Place (Infrastructure) Barometer – an analysis of delivery from a spatial perspective and an identification of transport priorities in the Black Country. 
  • LEP Intelligence Reports – monthly intelligence reports to inform the LEP Board
  • Analysis of latest Census results
  • Black Country Strategic Companies – profile of the high turnover companies in the Black Country
