Audit Commission, 10th January 2001

Local Authority Performance Indicators 1999/2000

The Commission has a duty under the Audit Commission Act 1998 to publish national comparative data based on the information collected in any financial year. The indicators relate to the definitions provided in the Publication of Information Direction 1998 and to the financial year 1999-2000. The data for Police and Fire relates to both English and Welsh authorities but please note that the data for local authorities relates only to English councils. The Welsh council data is due to be published in March 2001.

The data is now available on the Commissions web pages at:

The following two charts show a simple analysis of the data giving a breakdown of two of the indicators plotted against net spending () per head of population on environmental health & consumer protection. Although it might be expected that all councils would achieve 100%, this is clearly not the case!
