We are really pleased to launch our Numberhood smartphone app – ‘local stats in your pocket’ (iTunes). Although there are lots of sources of data on local areas, we felt that none really does the job of providing easy-to-use summary information across the range of important issues. And we thought we could have a go rather than just talking about it, hence Numberhood.
Numberhood shows how your local area fares on the important issues – the economy, unemployment, education, health, crime, housing and community strength. Data is shown for key issues and indicators, with data charts and descriptions to help you understand patterns and trends.
Key features include:
Possible users of Numberhood include:
Numberhood is currently available for iPhone/ iPad from the App Store, with Android and Blackberry versions in future. The free app covers 11 headline indicators, with an in-app purchase (£1.49p half price introductory offer) opening up 70 more indicators.
We’d love to hear from you if you have any comments on Numberhood, suggestions for improvement, or queries about the data or functionality – email/ call us on email@example.com or +44 1273 201 345.
