Overview of London boroughs
Posted on 17 October 2013
The table brings together the borough level indicators in the report. For each indicator, the four boroughs with the highest level are coloured red. The next four are orange, the next eight are amber and the remaining 16 are light yellow. So the darker the colours, the deeper the problems.
What stands out from this grid is that the Eastern parts of London have the most severe problems. There is a much clearer East/West divide than an Inner/Outer one. In particular, with the exception of the inequality indicators, the Inner West has few dark colours. By contrast, the Outer East & North East and Inner East & South has many.
The final column looks at how boroughs have changed overtime relative to one another (focusing on indicators 1, 2, 4, 15 and 17, which allow a direct time comparison). The green indicates boroughs that have seen a relative improvement and red indicates a worsening: the darker the colour the greater the change.
It shows boroughs in the Inner East & South have experienced the greatest improvements, so despite having a lot of dark red, things there are getting better. The boroughs that have fallen are in the Outer East & North East, where many indicators are now poor, but also part of the Outer West & North West too.
