We want the London City Dashboard to be a big step forward in opening up London’s data. The Mayor wants to use greater transparency to drive accountability and improvement in public services, ultimately so that the public has greater confidence in the organisations that deliver them.
Anyone who is interested should be able to look through this window on the capital’s vital public services and examine how performance affects everyday life in London. Our aim is simplicity. To help put the figures in context, more detailed analysis sits beyond the headline figures.
We recognise that this site - launched here in Beta - is not perfect. Not all the data we want is there yet (see our full Data Release Schedule). Importantly though, it is an early signal of our good intentions and desire to build. We are therefore inviting comments from everyone on the things you think we could do better, both in terms of content and how it is presented. We look forward to hearing from you.
