Local Data Spaces

The Local Data Spaces (LDS) programme is a collaboration between the Joint Biosecurity Centre (JBC), Office for National Statistics (ONS), the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and ADR UK.

The LDS programme used de-identified Covid-19 data from the national Test and Trace programme, from ONS, and also the CDRC to understand the spread of the pandemic in their areas and its impact on their communities.
Four academic researchers from University of Liverpool, University of Leeds and CDRC were funded to provide analysis on behalf of local authorities in need of analytical support. Among the deliverables of the project is a series of reports, for each Local Authority District in England, on differnt topics of interest during the COVID-19 pandemic:
* Demographic Inequalities In Covid 19
* Economic Vulnerability
* Ethnic Inequalities In Covid 19
* Excess Mortality
* Geospatial Inequalities In Covid 19
* Human Mobility Report
* Industry Densities
* Occupational Inequalities
* Population and Housing
* Social Economy
The reports, in html form and accessible offline, are available in the geodatapacks section of our website.
The reports have been created using data and boundaries from different years. Some Local Authority District might have a different code than the current one and might not contain all the reports listed above.

Accessing our data
The Consumer Data Research Centre CDRC was established in 2014 with funding from the ESRC. We ask users to register because it allows us to better understand the impact of our research. Aggregated figures and statistics on user types, volumes and activity are used for funding reporting to the ESRC. Our open datasets are directly downloadable by registered users, while our Secure and Safeguarded data is available via application on the relevant record's page.
