Wakefield Observatory changes

The Wakefield Observatory is merging with the Wakefield JSNA website to form a single comprehensive data resource for the Wakefield district.

LG Inform technology will be used to produce area profiles, and API technology is being developed to pull the latest data directly, in real time, from ONS and Government websites. The first phase of this new content can be found in an expanded district Characteristics section.

Wakefield JSNA will also be the new home for the State of the district report, providing a summary of the important social, economic, health and wellbeing trends affecting the district – updated twice a year.

There is more information about the changes to the Wakefield Observatory. If you have any questions, please e-mail intelligence@wakefield.gov.uk
