Summary

Please note:This spreadsheet publication supersedes the data published on the 30th September 2009 - Social Care and Mental health indicators from the National Indicator Set further analysis, Provisional, England 2008-09

The excel files containing the Social Care indicators NI 130 and NI 136 have changed following the revision of the Office for National Statistics mid-year population estimates for 2008 in Spring 2010.


The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government announced a new set of national indicators (NIS) for English local authorities and local authority partnerships as part of the Chancellor's Comprehensive Spending Review announcement on Tuesday 9 October 2007. The set underpins the new performance framework for local government and meets the Government's commitment to introduce a clear set of national outcomes and a single set of national indicators by which to measure them. The first official year for these indicators is 2008-09.
