Abstract

This study was designed to explore relevant issues in locally based public sector
organisations of different types in England, Scotland and Wales, and the research
was conducted between March and October 2008. Its specific aims were to:
• Investigate the collection and use of equality statistics by selected public sector
local level case study organisations (CSOs) in England, Scotland and Wales.
• Collect information on the use made by the selected CSOs of equality statistics
from national, regional and local level sources and data services; including the
use for equality purposes and for tackling human rights issues.
• Identify what additional primary data collection the CSOs carry out (if any) in
relation to equality and human rights issues, including data relating to attitudes
and prejudices, community cohesion and good relations.
• Identify what they perceive to be the information gaps/problems with existing
data.
• Identify examples of good practice in the collection and use of data by the
CSOs, including the use of data to assess the effectiveness of policy
interventions.
