Data4nr recognised in economic assessment guidance

The importance of the Data4nr service run by OCSI for the Department of Communities and Local Government (CLG) has been recognised in the recently published statutory guidance on the economic assessment duty:

“The majority of nationally provided data sets for local development are signposted on (data for neighbourhoods and regeneration) and these are updated as new sources become available”

Local economic assessments Draft statutory guidance, page 13

Data4nr identifies and signposts the datasets available for targeting, monitoring, priority setting and performance management at neighbourhood and local authority level, and is updated fortnightly with new and revised datasets. See for details, and sign-up for email updates at
