London Borough Profiles
These profiles help paint a general picture of an area by presenting a range of headline indicator data in both spreadsheet and map form to help show statistics covering demographic, economic, social and environmental datasets for each borough, alongside relevant comparator areas.
Open a summary of the key findings from the data, including a set of top 5 rankings (PDF). Note: This summary is of data contained in the first release (July 2011).
The full datasets and more information for each of the indicators are usually available on the London Datastore. A link to each of the datasets is contained in the spreadsheet and map.
On opening the spreadsheet a simple drop down box allows you to choose which borough profile you are interested in. Selecting this will display data for that borough, plus either Inner or Outer London, London and a national comparator (usually England where data is available).
To see the full set of data for all 33 local authorities in London plus the comparator areas in Excel, click the 'Data' worksheet.
A chart and a map are also available to help visualise the data for all boroughs (macros must be enabled for the Excel map to function).
The data is set out across 11 themes covering most of the key indicators relating to demographic, economic, social and environmental data. Sources are provided in the spreadsheet. Notes about the indicator are provided in comment boxes attached to the indicator names.

Note: Due to a software issue that has caused the 'export image' function on the map not to work, the Google maps background has been removed.
