East Sussex in Figures

Course Description

In assembling your grant application it is very important to evidence the need for your project using different sources. This four-hour online course will help you understand the resources available on the ESiF website and to become confident in extracting data in a variety of formats to suit your needs.

This course will show you how to:

  • explore data relating to unemployment, deprivation, ethnicity, economy, housing, population, etc
  • view tables, charts and maps for different subjects, e.g. housing, employment and transport
  • create area profiles that allow users to extract data for a chosen geographical area
  • access the latest data available on any topic and analyse changes over time
  • explore data for wards, parishes and Super Output Areas (geographical units developed by the Office for National Statistics), as well as for the county and districts of East Sussex
  • compare the local picture with the regional and national situation
  • investigate the results of representative sample surveys carried out locally
  • access over 50 static maps

There will be a Q&A session at the end where you will have an opportunity to ask any specific questions.
