Summary of published data 

Download the full list of indicators now available in Community Insight.

We have added 67 indicators to Community Insight. This release includes small area data from the labour market and travel to work topic summary. Indicators for the following datasets can now be seen live in Community Insight: 

  • Economic activity status (24 indicators) 
  • Travel to work (21 indicators) 
  • Industry and occupation (22 indicators)

ONS also published detailed breakdowns of different occupation and industry datasets. These are currently not available in Community Insight as the data has not been published at Output Area (and will show very low numbers in many instances). However, we can add breakdowns that are useful to you upon request – please send these to support@ocsi.co.uk 


We have updated 14 of the indicators in the Community Insight report (see Economy: Economic activity – page 51 and Economy: Job type – page 52). You will need to update your reports in order to see Census 2021 data here.
