About us

In 2012 Oxfordshire's district councils jointly commissioned a District Data Analysis service to highlight trends and geographical/other variations in social, economic and environmental data of relevance to District Council services. 

Now in its fifth year, the service is provided by Bella Image based at Oxford City Council and includes:

  • Ad hoc data notes and monthly charts (see chart of the month)
  • An annual data summary leaflet for each district (see district pages)
  • An annual presentation or training session at the offices of each District Council (see district pages)
  • An enquiry service by email or phone that will provide advice and guidance on sources of social, economic and environmental data.

The Data Analysis service helps district councils to make use of data and evidence on:

  • Population and households
  • Businesses and the economy
  • Education and skills
  • The environment
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Housing
  • Community safety
  • Communities

This type of statistical data forms one part of building a comprehensive evidence base for strategic and service planning.
