2. Implementation's characteristics

Neighbourhood Statistics is the name of one of the specialized cells/units involved in the collection and publication of statistical data in the UK. The unit was established in 2001. The aim of the institution is to help and support Neighbourhood Renewal, in terms of the quality of published statistical data, concerning local units in the United Kingdom.

A website by the same name, which functions within the office structure. It provides the statistical data online. The Neighbourhood Statistics website allows to look up statistical data concerning specific local units. The application organizes and systematizes data collected through the website. Data retrieval is done by indicating a postal code. Users can search for data by two procedures. In the first search option, it is necessary to indicate an administrative unit at a particular localization, which is looked for by a user – municipality, parish, electoral district, education areas, or areas of national health service. The second, simplified search option, includes a list of basic statistical data for a specified location. The data were included in 10 categories: from crime, basic economic data, through education and health, to data on labour market. The website allows to visualize data using maps and a graph. It is also possible to download tables with selected information and print data from the website. In addition, the website provides a few other, useful tools for maintaining statistical data. The first of them is a contour map generator. The application allows to prepare contour maps according to administrative units selected by a user, as well as mark them with user selected colours.

The second tools is a module for drawing up summaries of selected statistical data. The application allows to create any report in the form of tables, create graphs, save, print the data, as well as filter and organize data by time, name, location ect.

Neighbourhood Statistics also provides information on the adopted methodology for collecting and organizing data. Moreover, the website makes available application program interface of own created statistical databases.
