Our Evidence

Our Evidence

The Vale of Glamorgan Public Services Board published its Well-being Assessment in May 2021. The Assessment provided the PSB with an extensive evidence base from which to develop its priorities set out in the PSB's Well-being Plan. 

To build on the learning of the Assessment, and to keep track of key changes in the Vale, the PSB has developed an online Evidence Base. The Evidence Base will enable decisions to be made using data and learning which is as live as possible. Data is presented through four key reports, which utilise a number of key indicators to track the well-being of the Vale of Glamorgan. The four key reports include analysis and data on Demographic Change, Education and the Economy, Health and Communities and Environment and Transport. The report can be accessed by following the links set out in the boxes below.


Set out below are some further reports which set-out data and evidence on the Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation and Protected Characteristics in the Vale of Glamorgan. Also below are some links to Additional Data Sources which can be used alongside the Evidence Base to develop an understanding of the Vale of Glamorgan.
