The website will bring together key performance indicators including National Strategic Indicators amongst others. The website will be in two phases. For the first phase only the National Strategic Indicators data will be available, scheduled to be launched in mid-September. This website is intended to replace the existing National Strategic Indicators data visualisation tool and the annual Local Authority performance publication.
