Measuring what matters to our residents

When we asked 2,000 North of Tyne residents what was important to them, their feedback provided us with 10 wellbeing outcomes and 52 wellbeing indicators, which would help to measure progress towards those outcomes.  

The indicators include everything from healthy life expectancy through to average journey times on public transport, allowing us to measure the things that matter to local people.

We worked with the National Innovation Centre for Data to produce a dashboard to complement our Wellbeing Framework. The dashboard monitors changes to the wellbeing indicators over time, to help inform local decisions and policy making.  

At NTCA we’re passionate about putting collective wellbeing at the heart of our decision-making to create a more inclusive economy. If you’re interested in a discussion about how you might use these tools in your own strategic planning and policy making processes, please contact for an informal discussion.
